Where does version in the manager-gui app come from?

Hi All,

This is a trivial problem that's not a big deal but it would be nice to figure it out.

When you bring up the manager web app http://<myserver>/manager it gives you a nice table of deployed applications. Everything I see has version as "not specified". See attached image.

I've tried a version tag in web.xml but that's not it. I can't find any documentation on this. My version is a string like 0.1.52, I just realized it might need to be an integer.

Anybody know where to set that?

Thanks,
Joe

I think that's the version number used in the war file name if you deploy multiple versions of the same web app in parallel. See http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-doc/config/context.html, particularly "Parallel deployment" and "Naming".

That's a Tomcat-specific feature useful for deploying a new version of a web app without undeploying the old version first.
