Subject Using APR in a Catalina-Home/Base Installation
Date Mon, 03 Jul 2006 13:48:36 GMT
Hi all,

after a while I had figured out how to use APR with Tomcat (cf. 
on a 64-Bit environment with a 32-bit JVM. Now the next issue popped up:

If Tomcat is started from the CATALINA_HOME/bin directory by 
then the log file CATALINA_HOME/logs/catalina.out clearly informs if APR 
is not used: "The Apache Tomcat Native library which allows optimal 
performance in production environments was not found on the 
java.library.path: ...".

Yet, in an installation with a CATALINA_HOME directory and several 
CATALINA_BASE directories that message does not appear when Tomcat is 
started with different CATALINA_BASE settings. In other word, if the 
CATALINA_BASE environment variable is set to another directory than 
CATALINA_HOME and the CATALINA_HOME/bin/ is executed then the 
log file CATALINA_BASE/logs/catalina.out does not contain that message. 
(The log file CATALINA_HOME/logs/catalina.out is not written any more.)

1. Why is this message no longer reported?
2. Is there a possibility to check if the APR is used or not?
