This is what I have my /tomcat/conf/context.xml
but my app still cannot read the symbolically linked file but if replaced with the real file , works fine.
My tomcat version is 6.0.14 on linux.
Any ideas where the issue might be?
All help is very much appreciated.
yeah under our /webapp/appname/WEB-INF. my symlink is pointing to the real location of the a properties file.
Tomcat simply doesn not want to read this file through the symlink....
file & tomcat owner...OK.
made sure allowLinking=True is in the context, still cannot read it.
is it jdk1.6.0_16??
it was a bad xml file. fixed that and it worked fine.wrong context declaration( syntax was OK though) prohibited the entire line to be ignored hence the symlink wasn't being read(mainly the allowLinking=true)
once fixed , it got picked up.
