Subject Re: Windows and Tomcat
Date Fri, 09 Sep 2005 13:18:28 GMT
I have received partial success. Windows has a bad habit to do things by 
default or to do things whcihc make no sense. 
The problem was due to inherritance/ permissions for Windows folder. 
Unsetting the read-only thing does not work, becasuse windows changes it to 
read-only by default. The only way one can work around is to change the 
"folder options for XP", in view you have an option to change the security 
configuration. This will provide you with more granular (user based 
permissions for folders/files) access. Now you can change options you like. 
In unix "chown" and "chmod" would have solved the problems.

Thanks for help!!
