Subject Deploying ROOT.war indicates missing application web.xml
Date Mon, 22 Aug 2005 09:20:02 GMT
Hi Everyone,
Just been deploying ROOT.war into webapps and it's failing to explode. The logs indicate;
INFO: Deploying web application archive ROOT.war
22-Aug-2005 09:46:44 org.apache.catalina.startup.ContextConfig applicationWebConfig
INFO: Missing application web.xml, using defaults only
Yet, if I rename ROOT.war to and open it in WinZip, the web.xml has been correctly
packed by the Ant WAR task. Indeed if I unzip the WAR into webapps manually, the web application
works fine and is packaged correctly.
I use an Ant WAR task
      <classes dir="${classes.dir}" />
      <lib dir="${webroot.dir}/WEB-INF/lib" />
      <webinf dir="${webroot.dir}/WEB-INF" />
      <metainf dir="${webroot.dir}/META-INF" />
      <fileset dir="${webroot.dir}">
        <include name="includes/**" />
        <include name="resources/**" />
        <include name="views/**" />        
Any ideas why Tomcat is exhibiting this behaviour?
Cheers, Allistair.
