Subject Re: Noob needs help with a webservice wich uses resources located in a folder
Date Mon, 03 Sep 2007 16:23:55 GMT
If my quick read of your problem is correct, (only works when run from 
command line) then I would venture to say that you may have a rights issue. 
Who owns the app? By default Tomcat starts from the scripts as owner tomcat 
where as from the command line it is running as you (root or some admin 
level). Try chown and chgrp the app to tomcat and see if that helps.

No even moving it into the folder does not give Tomcat the rights to access 
it. You could also change the access rights but I would be careful there as 
letting anyone execute code is not a good thing, but chgrp to tomcat and 
group executable would work. Just make sure you understand what the 
implications of the changes you make are, even on ownership and group 
membership.
