Subject deployer does not support multi-level context path (was RE: Major bug in deployer!!)
Date Fri, 07 Apr 2006 00:12:31 GMT
Seems that many people have been asking how to use Tomcat deployer to deploy 
a war to a context that contains multi-level path (like /subdir/myapp 
or /foo/bar/myapp instead of simple /myapp).

After spending a day trying this and that, searching through the mail 
archive, I found that this feature is not implemented and the corresponding 
bug request has been marked as "WONT FIX" in March 2005.

Seems that you can deploy an application to a multi-level context manually 
by copying context.xml file into 
$CATALINA_BASE/conf/Catalina/localhost/subdir#myapp.xml and copying the 
application files into $CATALINA_BASE/webapps/subdir/myapp/. Why can't the 
deployer do the just that?

Did anyone find a workaround?


ps. In any case, this message is just to summarize the response by apache 
developer Remy Maucherat, since none of the discussions on 
the user mailing list were answered conclusively. Hopefully a note can be 
added to the deployer reference manual.
