Subject RE: setting the context path in tomcat5.5.9?
Date Tue, 04 Oct 2005 14:45:20 GMT
In an issue related to this and the documentation cited below, my attempts
to create a Context in the 
META-INF/context.xml were not successful, that is, I could create the
context.xml file but the attributes did not seem to take affect. I could set
them in the $CATALINA_HOME/conf/[enginename]/[hostname]/ directory and it
would work.
As an example, if I defined the attributes antiJARLocking=true and
antiResourceLocking=true in the application's META-INF/context.xml file, I
would still have jar and resource locking issues. When I defined the same
attributes in the $CATALINA_HOME/conf/[enginename]/[hostname] directory, jar
and resource locking was not an issue.

This completely ignores the admonition in the Tomcat doc:
"Please note that for tomcat 5, unlike tomcat 4.x, it is NOT recommended
to place <Context> elements directly in the server.xml file."

I'd suggest that a careful reading of:
is in order.
