Subject RE: preserving files/folders when updating an app
Date Mon, 06 Nov 2006 17:42:50 GMT
Can you provide an installer with your web app that will back up those
files, then copy them back post-install?  Alternately, could you have
another webapp that only exists to hold that information?

| Subject: preserving files/folders when updating an app
| 
| I have not been able to find a way to protect files from being
| removed/replaced when we apply a new war file update. This is the
| condition
| I want to have.
| 
| 
| 
| After installing our web app, I want to be able to save or modify
files
| used
| by our web app. I am thinking of either css files or a directory with
a
| structure in it, like folders holding attachments.
| 
| These files need to be with in the web server space, so they can be
| reached
| via url or to reach the css files. Users may be able to modify the css
| file,
| and change the look of some html. But then if we give them a new
update,
| and
| they do not remember to backup those files, the new war file would
delete
| them.
| 
| 
| 
| Any thoughts?
