This seems to be similar to a post that got started under another
thread.  I have included the info below.
What I have found so far is that the complete tree does not get
transfered to the Tomcat webapps folder from the .war.
I have to do some testing to see if I can come up with exactly what it

Hi list

As i am a newbie to tomcat this question might be easy to answer for

I have succesfully deployed a .war application with eclipse wtp. 
Installing that .war file to tomcat works fine, but...

After stopping the application and starting it again, tomcat comes up
errors telling me there is a null pointer exception.
Does anyone have an idea why?


I have the same problem. Eclipse 3.1 WTP install.
I ended up shutting down tomcat and deleting the .war and the folder,
then saving the new .war file and start the tomcat up again.
I also publish to another tomcat server and still have to do the same
thing.  On both machines I am running tomcat 5.5.17.
Hope someone has a solution as this is a pain.
