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

It's not what your program can do, it's what your users do with the program.

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.
