Subject RE: Tomcat6 relative contexts

6.0.18 **does** unpack a foo#bar.war to a foo#bar directory

as long as you have enough disk space ( woops ;)

interestingly no error message to tell you if the unpack failed tho'....

I'm havng a little bit of trouble picking up local resources in my app
deployed as foo#bar, using the ClassLoader, 
- but I'm sure I can fix this as the ClassLoader is picking up bundled
libraries OK

thanks again
