Subject Java update from Apple broke Tomcat
Date Mon, 01 Nov 2010 17:55:23 GMT
Hi,

While I run production on Linux servers, I do my development on my iMac.
Last week, I ran the most recent Apple Java upgrade , and now Tomcat (which
is a critical part of my development environment) won't start up.  I get the
error:

Nov 1, 2010 8:58:54 AM org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap
initClassLoaders
SEVERE: Class loader creation threw exception
java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: IS_DIR
     at 
org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.createClassLoader(Bootstrap.java:167)
     at 
org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.initClassLoaders(Bootstrap.java:92)
     at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.init(Bootstrap.java:207)
     at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.main(Bootstrap.java:391)

Other details:

java version "1.6.0_22"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_22-b04-307-10M3261)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 17.1-b03-307, mixed mode)

Tomcat version:  6.0.18 and 6.0.29 ‹ both fail to start, throwing the same
exception

>From the error, it appears that things are missing from the update (or at
least one field is).  Has anyone else seen this?  Is there a known
work-around?

Thanks,
