Hi,

I'm trying to learn how to develop web applications with Java and I am reading the development process guide on Apache Tomcat site. I've gotten as far as using ant to compile my app but i cant get it to deploy.

When attempting to deploy the following is written to var/log/tomcat6/catalina.out:


java.io.FileNotFoundException: /home/kevin/projects/serverlet/tomcat6/myfirstapp/build (Permission denied)

At first I thought it must be that Ant / Java does not have permission to access my build directory but that is not the case, it is readable by everyone. Then I thought maybe I don't have permission to write to tomcat6/webapps (even though that's not what the Exception indicates) so I added myself to the tomcat6 group and made tomcat6/webapps group writeable but this didn't help.

I'm running Java 1.6 on Fedora 13.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

I just ran "chmod -R 775 /home/kevin" and now I can deploy.

I still don't understand what the problem was. My build directory was readable and the deploy target only needs to copy the files from my build directory. Can anyone explain?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
