have you checked that you are running tomcat as the same user that you are using to deploy the web service?
It looks like a file permission problem, separate to both tomcat and web services.

ah...it`s true.. I changed the permission to the tomcat home...etc... cause user root had rights and I deployed with another user. Now on my tomcat folders have permission, for example: myuser(the user):tomcat6(the group).
What I noticed is that when an error occurred and it`s written out to catalina.out the catalina.out permissions change to tomcat6(the user):tomcat6(the group) . What to do to stop doing that?
