Subject AW: Redeployment of war File stopps suddenly

Additionally the information from Tomcat doc:

"When using automatic deployment, the docBase defined by an XML
<> Context file
should be outside of the appBase directory. If this is not the case,
difficulties may be experienced deploying the web application or the
application may be deployed twice. The deployIgnore attribute can be used to
avoid this situation."

Betreff: Redeployment of war File stopps suddenly



We have a big problem with deployment over war in a Tomcat 6.0.32. If there
is no application yet, the initial upload through the manger works. If we
redeploy the running application again, the undeploy process fails and we
have a half installation, in the Manager the application name is empty. To
get free out of this situation, we have to click three times to "undeploy"
and then all files are deleted and the Context Descriptor will be deleted.


War File named ROOT.war resists in D:/tecracer/apps/apps1


The deployed file in /conf/Catalina/app1/ROOT.xml contains:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<Context path="" docBase="D:/tecracer/apps/app1/" privileged="true"
reloadable="true" unpackWAR="true" antiJARLocking="true">



In the Server.xml we have inside the Engine:

<Host name="app1 " appBase="D:/tecracer/apps/app1" unpackWARs="true"

className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve" directory="logs"

               prefix="app1_access_log." suffix=".txt" pattern="common"



Do we make a thinking mistake in the understanding of automatical
