Subject Re: war file deployment on openvms
Date Fri, 14 Jul 2006 16:01:03 GMT

There are 2 things Ive noted when porting 1 system to another
-Case sensitivity matters /Foo/Bar is not /foo/bar
-Permissions can stop processing in an instant without a thought or care..make sure default
user account 'nobody' has access to the folders
If user account 'nobody' doesnt have access to folder $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/YourWebApp/WEB-INF/classes
you'll have to login
with user that has sufficient privs to create those folders
