Subject Context Descriptor file not created
Date Tue, 25 Mar 2008 12:40:28 GMT
Hi All,

I am using tomcat version 5.5.25. I am deploying my application 
statically i.e.:

1. I untar tomcat tgz file.
2. Copy myapp.war in webapps/ directory.
3. Start tomcat using BootStrap class.

I am able to access my application through its URL now BUT there is no 
Context Descriptor created for this. I did a find for context.xml and 
esm.xml (esm is name for my application) but no results. Following link

says that a context descriptor is always created if it doesn't already 

Am I doing something wrong here ?

I am also facing some problem with application reloading. I have 
followed exactly following sequence:

But when I change some JSP and reload using ant task, it doesn't 
reflect. Also, tomcat seems to have created a local copy of all files in 
its webapps/ directory. Do I need to do something else in addition to 
what is described here ?
