Subject RE: Deploying in ROOT folder using a war file
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2005 18:07:39 GMT
Hi Chuck,
  I tried using ROOT.war with Tomcat 5.5.12 and it
worked fine. It does not work with Tomcat 4.1.x
versions. I guess we will have to (finally) upgrade
our Tomcat versions.

thanks for all your help... all of you...

regards,
Gautam.
