Subject WAR File Not Expanded
Date Thu, 20 Sep 2007 17:56:19 GMT
	Not sure if this request was sent.... (if so, sorry for duplication)...

> When I place an war file in CATALINA_HOME\webapps directory, SOME TIMES the war file
gets expanded into its own directory other times it does not. 
> For example:
> MyApp.war is placed in C:\apache-tomcat-5.5.17\webapps\MyApp.war.  
> When tomcat is started (startup.bat) it expands it to:
> C:\apache-tomcat-5.5.17\webapps\MyApp\META-INF and C:\apache-tomcat-5.5.17\webapps\MyApp\WEB-INF
with class and lib directories and web.xml.  
> For other applications, starting tomcat it does not get expanded.
> What causes this and how can I make sure it always expands the war file??
