I have an application deployed on tomcat installation on a linux box. I use manager app to deploy the application war file and then start tomcat. In this case tomcat is taking lot of time to start around 25 min each time. Anybody faced similar issue? Any resolutions on this?
Tomcat starts up for me in less than 30 seconds. From your symptoms I would bet that something in your startup code is trying to make network or database connections which are taking a long time to fail.
