Subject Re: tomcat doesn't reload my classes
Date Thu, 05 Oct 2006 13:01:57 GMT
Your suggestion is appreciated, all my webapp implement the driver 
you've suggested, but regarding the Realm configuration I preferred 
follow the tomcat docs which says: "The fully qualified Java class name 
of this Realm implementation. You *MUST* specify the value 
"|org.apache.catalina.realm.JDBCRealm|" here. " (see

back to my problem: I discovered that the kindly network administrator 
had configured two tomcat instances, one working with apache connector 
for the normal http request and the other on a different port for the 
ssl. Both instances get the classes from the same directory, but 
apparently on the one set for the ssl, reload attribute was disabled for 
some how. In another words it means that each time I reloaded the tomcat 
I only did it for the http connection.

I have to say that I didn't have an easy life with Apache http connector 
and Tomcat, especially for what regards ssl. I believe that for future 
I'll opt for using tomcat as standalone webserver which to serve html 
pages too, instead to lose working days again.

Thanks for your help
