Subject Re: WAR deployment incomplete (sometimes)
Date Wed, 09 May 2007 20:22:15 GMT
Ok.... another guess and another war story ;)

I found that if I did a URLConnection in a filter init.... I managed to 
completely lock up Tomcat on a start.... stone dead...
I then deleted the War and the folder and after figuring out wot the problem 
was, it would still not deploy the new one and start... only if I deleted 
the conf/Catalina/host/(web-app).xml file did it recover.

So please try this as well... if there is a conf/Catalina/host/(web-app).xml 
with the same name as you want to deploy... kill that as well.
ROOT.war  is a little special... so wot I'm suggesting is you make sure that 
you destroy any traces of a previous version in (conf and web-apps).
I've being trying to replicate wots happening to you and I cant...  so sorry 
run out of other ideas... but just to recap my weird experiences...

-- Netbeans can hang onto Tomcat...
-- A filter can cripple tomcat...
-- And the common factor seems to be if the context path under 
conf/Catalina/host/webAppName.xml is still pointing at something else... 
like the netbeans build... it sometimes ignores the WAR....

good Luck....

I don't see a consistent pattern, but it definitely happens on first
deployment.  In my scenario, Tomcat is installed as part of a larger
product installation, with the WAR file under the webapps directory,
