We are using Hudson Continuous Integration to perform nightly builds of our WAR files. These are automatically deployed (hot deployed) to a Tomcat 6 instance. Everything works fine, except that previously deployed applications linger in the the Tomcat/temp directory. Their directory names are prefixed with a number.
For instance on day one we would see in the Tomcat/temp dir the following directory:
with the 1-WarFile directory containing the complete unzipped WAR file.
The following day it would be
1-WarFile still contains all JARs from the WEB-INF lib directory, 2-WarFile contains the newly deployed application.
The next day it would be:
And so on and so forth.
Eventually the disk will fill up and the older directories in the Tomcat/temp directory have to be manually removed.
Any idea why there is not decent cleanup of the Tomcat/temp directory?
