This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi, there is a Tomcat 5.5 instance, and I've deployed two webapps by dropping the WAR files into the webapps folder. The database connection string, respectively, is read from a properties file, which resides in WEB-INF/classes. The code to read a property is simply,
Now, the problem is, both webapps are using the same properties file, the one of webapp1.
I made sure that's a fact, and also made sure there are no offending JARs in $CLASSPATH, $TOMCAT_HOME/webappX/WEB-INF/lib or $TOMCAT_HOME/common.
Edit: BTW, the method that retrieves the values from the properties file is static. Edit: Strange enough, some legacy webapps within the same Tomcat instance are throwing errors now, because Java method signatures have changed. Thus, actually a set of WEB-INF/classes gets loaded from other webapps(!).
