I'm having a problem deploying my web-app. It works fine as a war file, but when I try to use the context in the server.xml, it doesn't pick up my files at all: I get 404 errors. And nothing appears in the workDir.
This is the correct path, as far as I can see. Otherwise, I'm just using the default server.xml which comes with a new installation of tomcat4.
Other info: yes, it is nested correctly (i.e. inside the host). This is an automatically generated insert from eclipse, using the tomcat plugin. There are no errors when I start tomcat. Errrmmm... I'm using windows 2000 FWIW. The web app shows up quite happily in the manager. All the files are in the appropriate places. As I say, it works quite happily as a war file.
The reason I don't want to use a war is that I don't want to have to delete the old expanded war directory and restart tomcat every single time I make a change... it makes my development life hellish.
I really don't understand what the problem is here. Any suggestions gratefuly received....
