Subject WAR files locked, cannot delete for update with Manager App
Date Mon, 15 Apr 2002 02:51:15 GMT

When deploying from WAR files with 4.0.1, with unpackWars=false,
I find that the WAR files become locked, and cannot be deleted from
the file system without shutting down Tomcat.

The app can be stopped and unloaded using the manager,
but because the old WAR file is locked (still in use), it re-installs
again each time the server is started and there is no way
to get rid of it, except for deleting it when Tomcat is not

Is there any way to completely stop an application or
virtual server so the file can be deleted while Tomcat is
still running?  Is this a known bug in Tomcat's unloader?

Thanks for all your help,
Neale Rudd
