Subject Re: detecting tomcat 5.5

    Thanks-- unfortunately by default (at least on Unix) that file is 
not executable so it wouldn't even execute by default.

    Has anyone actually created an ant task or can give me some ant 
logic for doing Tomcat version detection for 5.5? Here's a snippet that 
worked for Tomcat 4 and Tomcat 5.0.X that was fairly easy:

            <available file="${appserver.home}/conf/Catalina" type="dir" 
                <echo message="Detected Tomcat 5"/>
                <echo message="Detected Tomcat 4"/>

    Thanks, Jason
