Hello all, I would like to hear your thoughts on how the experienced developers have handled this scenario. At the moment I follow the steps below everytime I want to update my application on the production server. Assume that I have already deployed one version of the application. I have a context entry for the application in the server.xml file. I am going to call my application MyApp for the moement. 1. Create a MyApp.war file. 2. Shut tomcat 3. Remove MyApp.war and the MyApp folder from the webapps/ folder. 4. i remove the context entry for the application in server.xml (i basically just change the name) 5. copy the new MyApp.war file into webapps/ folder, 6. start tomcat. This will create the MyApps folder. 7. change the server.xml entry back. 8. Restart tomcat. Shouldn't the process of deploying be simpler. I know if I didn't have an entry for the application in the server.xml file, then I would simply have to replace the files and restart tomcat. But i need the server.xml entry because the context has the JNDI datasource declaration and the logger declaration. by the way I am using tomcat 4.1.24, and jdk 1.4.1 I would really like to hear your input on this. Thank you. Poorav
