Subject Re: Tomcat 5.5.12 - Why does app undeploy when war file deleted
Date Fri, 21 Oct 2005 19:33:45 GMT

OK...I've answered my own question...but just in case someone else needs

"...the Tomcat 4 <Host> attribute named liveDeploy has been renamed

Note: You have to explicitly set autoDeploy to "false"  because it defaults 
to "true" unless
specified otherwise (I left the unpackWARs line in there just so it's clear 
what to set).

With these settings, war files deploy only on startup...then, later, if the 
war files are removed,
the deployed application stays.
