Subject Deployment Problem - behavior changed from 5.x to 7.x
Date Sun, 17 Nov 2013 11:56:27 GMT

I got a Problem with Tomcat deployment. I am using TC 7.0.42, OS: Win2k8r2, J 1.7.0._45. 

We used to deploy unpacked webapps (dirs) on a Tomcat 5.0.26 outside the Webapps-dir. We used
the manager (web-IF) to deploy these apps, giving the context name and the local directory.
The tomcat ran the app from this location. It creates a <contex>.xml in it's config

Now in TC7, the tomcat COPIES the APP from the given location to the default Webapps directory.
But we want it to run from where it is, not a copy. One way to archieve this is to manually
create a <context>.xml file in the conf/server/localhost dir. But our deployment process
needs it to be done via web interface. So, is there any possibility to configure tomcat 7
to behave like tomcat 5 when deploying local webapp directories from outside the webapps dir?
I tried autoDeploy and unpackWars to false, but it didn't help. :(
