Subject Tomcat5 / war file deployment: symlink problem
Date Tue, 16 Aug 2005 09:40:04 GMT
I have a tomcat5 installation running on a RHEL ES3 box which I am 
having some issues with.

I have a symlink back to an images directory which is outside the 
context. This works fine and I can read the images etc.

The problem occurs when I redeploy the context through the manager 
webapp: when the context is removed. the removal script seems to follow 
the symlinks, thus deleting my images directory.

Any suggestions on how to avoid this?
