Subject problems using tomcat ant tasks
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2005 13:30:10 GMT

Hi there,

in opposite to my previous post I want to deploy a war file to remote server running Tomcat
using the Tomcat Ant-task (provided by catalina-ant.jar). But even I get 'OK' back from the
server - the newly added files are not copied in the webapp dir. Do I make something wrong
? If possible I don't want to restart the server.

Here's my Ant task:
-- file tomcatTask.xml

<property name="deploy.dir" value="C:\Temp\ant-test\deployment\" />
(it's hard-coded because relative dir's didn't worked for me)

<property name="" value="webapp" />
<property name="" value="webapp" />
<property name="tomcat.username" value="TomcatAdmin" />
<property name="tomcat.password" value="XXXX" />
<property name="tomcat.manager.url" value="http://remoteHost:8888/manager/" />

<taskdef name="deploy" classname="org.apache.catalina.ant.DeployTask" />
<taskdef name="list" classname="org.apache.catalina.ant.ListTask" />
<taskdef name="reload" classname="org.apache.catalina.ant.ReloadTask" />
<taskdef name="undeploy" classname="org.apache.catalina.ant.UndeployTask" />

<target name="deploy" description="Install application in Tomcat">
<deploy url="${tomcat.manager.url}"

<target name="remove" description="Remove application in Tomcat">
<undeploy url="${tomcat.manager.url}"

<target name="redeploy" description="Redeploy application">
<antcall target="remove" />
<antcall target="deploy" />

I'm calling this target from another file like this:
<ant antfile="${basedir}/deploy/tomcatTask.xml" dir="${out.dir}" target="redeploy"/>

Sometimes I have seen that all files in the webapp dir are completly deleted except tree libraries
from WEB-INF/lib !?

In the tomcat config I have set unpackWARs=TRUE and also created a Tomcat manager user.

Thanks, Lothar
