Subject Where does it find them ?
Date Fri, 21 Nov 2008 20:19:29 GMT
Hi.

At a customer runs a Tomcat 5.5.9, on Java 1.5, under HPUX 11.11.
It was installed from a standard HPUX package, which install in 
/opt/hpws/tomcat, but otherwise looks pretty much like a plain vanilla 
Tomcat5.x from the official site.
The package comes with a series of sample webapps, apparently installed 
in /opt/hpws/tomcat/webapps.
I have added my own application under there too, and it works.
(Fine is another story, but that's not the crux here).
For various reasons, I wanted to slim down this Tomcat, and for that 
remove the sample applications.
I thus created a backup directory somewhere, stopped Tomcat, and moved 
the following subdir trees totally to this new dir :
../webapps/jsp-examples
../webapps/servlets-examples
../webapps/webdav
(to respectively somewhere_else/webapps-saved/jsp-examples etc..)
then I restarted Tomcat.

Tomcat starts,
and I have this kind of lines in the catalina.out logfile :
...
Nov 21, 2008 11:12:51 AM org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol start
INFO: Starting Coyote HTTP/1.1 on http-8081
Nov 21, 2008 11:12:51 AM org.apache.jk.common.ChannelSocket init
INFO: JK: ajp13 listening on /0.0.0.0:8009
Nov 21, 2008 11:12:51 AM org.apache.jk.server.JkMain start
INFO: Jk running ID=0 time=0/33  config=null
Nov 21, 2008 11:12:51 AM org.apache.catalina.storeconfig.StoreLoader load
INFO: Find registry server-registry.xml at classpath resource
Nov 21, 2008 11:12:52 AM org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina start
INFO: Server startup in 10019 ms
...

So far, so good.
Using the Manager app, I don't see the above apps anymore (but still see 
the ones I left sitting in /webapps, and can use them).
...

But a while later, I discover the following in the Tomcat catalina.out 
logfile :

Nov 21, 2008 11:57:39 AM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext stop
INFO: Container 
org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/jsp-examples] 
has not been started
Nov 21, 2008 11:57:41 AM org.apache.catalina.startup.HostConfig 
checkResources
INFO: Undeploying context [/jsp-examples]
Nov 21, 2008 11:57:48 AM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext stop
INFO: Container 
org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/servlets-examples] 
has not been started
Nov 21, 2008 11:57:48 AM org.apache.catalina.startup.HostConfig 
checkResources
INFO: Undeploying context [/servlets-examples]
Nov 21, 2008 11:58:23 AM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext stop
INFO: Container 
org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/webdav] 
has not been started
Nov 21, 2008 11:58:23 AM org.apache.catalina.startup.HostConfig 
checkResources
INFO: Undeploying context [/webdav]
Nov 21, 2008 12:00:04 PM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext stop

Now, my question is, considering these webapps are no longer "there" (in 
mean in the tomcat/webapps directory, where does Tomcat find the 
information about them, to see (apparently) that that they should have 
been there ?

Magic ?

(An accessory question of course is why it takes Tomcat some 40+ minutes 
to figure this out.)
