Subject crossContext getContext() for Parrallel Deployments
Date Thu, 30 Oct 2014 19:10:03 GMT

When trying to forward a request from one context to another getContext() is returning the
root context when Parrallel deployments is used in tomcat 7 or 8

For example:
foo_a##001 and foo_b##001 are deployed.
Page on /foo_a/test.jsp calls Servlet.getContext("/foo_b").  In non Parrallel deployments
this returns the ServletContext for /foo_b. However in Parrallel deployments the ServletContext
for / is returned instead.

His was encountered using a custom filter that is set to forward certain requests to files
in one application to a central default application.

CrossContext is set to true for the context.xml.  This works as long as the wars do not use
the version name such as foo_b.war instead of foo_b##001.war.
