Subject RE: Updating running WARs?
Date Mon, 07 Feb 2005 23:19:26 GMT
I use the Tomcat Deployer.  If you're not familiar with Tomcat Deployer
you'll be able to find information here.

In a nutshell, it's a collection of ant ( tasks that will
deploy a war to a remote tomcat server.  But I had some JNDI issues unless
my context was defined inside the META-INF/context.xml file I spoke of.

I'm sorry, I'm confused. Once you created a context.xml in your WARs, what
were your steps to update a running application?
