Subject Re: Webapp reload failing, but restarting tomcat allows webapp to load fine
Date Thu, 01 Jun 2006 22:50:34 GMT

Thanks for your suggestion, but it's unlikely that web.xml was 
misconfigured just because of this TC upgrade (it wouldn't have needed 
to change).  Also, when I restart tomcat (rather than just reload via 
the manager), the webapp comes up just fine.  It's only on a reload that 
things fail, and they didn't even fail under 5.5.12, but do under 
5.5.17.  It seems very likely this is related to a TC bug when contexts 
are being reloaded with some classpath-related issue remaining.  I know 
that such classpath issues can be tricky when the webapp has to be 
dropped from the running JVM and then later added back in.
