Subject RE: preserving files/folders when updating an app
Date Mon, 06 Nov 2006 18:28:48 GMT
OK. I am just trying to find out if there is a way, using TC to do what I
wish. I currently use virtual directories and apache to serve "saved files"
that my webapp copies to a specified location. I am considering using CSS in
my html files now, and would like to allow users to modify those css files
in a format they wish. But of course once they do that, any future updates
would over right the modified css files.

What you're trying to do is somewhat in conflict with the intent of the
servlet spec, which allows deployment of webapps on devices that don't
even have file systems.  Also, if your app is deployed on a Tomcat
instance where unpacking WARs is disabled, it will fail.
