Subject Re: Virtual Host and dynamic webapp reloading [SOLVED]
Date Thu, 27 Sep 2007 15:32:44 GMT
Thanks to all for your responses and advice, from this I have now 
addressed the problem by using an alternative configuration. For the 
record heres what I did:

- I ended up creating a completely different folder for my webapps. I 
created subdirectories for each virtual host, rather than having all my 
virtual host's web applications inside $CATALINA_HOME/webapps, and set 
the appBase in server.xml's <Host> element to match this.
- I had my ant script generate a ROOT.war instead of the project name 
and dumped this .war in my new appBase/domain/ directory.
- I set unpackWars and autoDeploy to true on each Host
- I created a META-INF/context.xml in my web app (as I needed to do some 
config on the context)

Now whenever I drop a new web app in using the catalina ant deploy task 
the changes are reflected. So I suppose the punchline is don't bung all 
your webapps in the default folder and try to use <Context> elements, 
but break them into seperate folders, and use ROOT.war if you want to 
host off the default context ("/").

thanks everyone!
