Subject Context file with multi-level path
Date Fri, 19 Jan 2007 22:51:45 GMT
Hi, 
I have recently upgrade from tomcat 5.0.28 to 5.5.20 and everything seems to
be working fine for most of my apps except for the ones that have context
with multi-level path. Also I should mention that I am not unpacking any of
my war files. (unpackWARs="false" autoDeploy="true")

I deployed my app - foo.war which had the following context in
foo.war/meta-inf/context.xml 

<Context path="/some/foo" docBase="foo.war" debug="0" privileged="true"
reloadable="true"/> 


In the Tomcat Manager Application List, I only see the path /foo and also in
the <TOMCAT_CONF>/Catalina/hostname there is a file called foo.xml. If I try
to hit the url  <http://localhost:8080/some/foo>
http://localhost:8080/some/foo - it doesn't work.

I did some reach on this issue and found a similar issue in bugzilla (
<http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=38198>
http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=38198) that mentioned that
the path element is no longer being used and it mentions that I should
rename the context.xml file to contain the path. According to Bug#:38198 in
bugzilla - the fix is to rename the foo.xml file to be some#foo.xml and
remove the path. So I renamed the file in
<TOMCAT_CONF>/Catalina/hostname/foo.xml to
<TOMCAT_CONF>/Catalina/hostname/some#foo.xml and it now contains the
following:

<Context docBase="foo.war" debug="0" privileged="true" reloadable="true"/> 

When I do this and start up tomcat, I get the following error: 

SEVERE: Error starting static Resources 
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Document base
C:\www\tomcat_5.5.20\webapps\some\foo does not exist or is not a readable

I also tried changing the docBase to be the absolute path of the war file: 

some#foo.xml 
<Context docBase="C:\www\tomcat_5.5.20\webapps\foo.war" debug="0"
privileged="true" reloadable="true"/> 

But I get the same result as above. 

Could someone please tell me how they are able to get this to work with 5.5
- what changes do I need to make so that when I deploy my war - foo.war, it
show up in the Tomcat Manager Application List with path /some/foo

Thanks for your help 
Ajay.
