Why Tomcat is creating random WEB-INF folders.

+2 votes

I installed apache-tomcat-7.0.47 on debian and also installed and configured railo I added the servlet for CFML and now i ended up with lots of WEB-INF directories in my tomcat directory and the subdirectories.

A find gives me the following output :


The tomcat takes quite a while (350s) to start up and this is really starting to annoy me. So, whats this and what are some common settings to achieve a faster start up of the tomcat?

I'm using Apache Tomcat 6.0.24 and I've deployed a web application that defines its resources into META-INF/context.xml , especially information about connection pool

Sometimes I''ve to edit that file to change some data , i.e, database's JDBC url

I've seen that restart web application is not enough to apply these changes , so I need to redeploy the web application ( I mean, unpack WAR file, modify it , repack it again, copy to deploy folder ...)

Do you know other way to modify META-INF/context.xml and apply the changes and don't have to redeploy the WAR file? Restart the web application is not a problem, but restart Tomcat is?

I would like to create a web filter to forward some requests to another webserver,

The filter receives an "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" request , inspects the value of a parameter and chooses to forward to another remote webserver ( as a proxy )

I've seen some posts where they open a HttpURLConnection to remote server and send the request. This is right for me, but I'd would like if there is another way ( easier ) to implement it.

I am just wondering whether somehow I can use web.xml to point to the Tomcat JDBC Realm that I am using. Are those two completely disjoint or I can link them together.

I'm trying to set up an existing Spring webapp that ran on a different container before (weblogic), to run on Tomcat. Working on it in Eclipse, I've gotten all of the compile errors out, and I was able to add the webapp to my Tomcat server instance in the "Servers" view. I started the server instance, and I didn't see any errors in the console log, but I also didn't see lines that looked like it was deploying my web module.

As expected, trying to access (and also trying various "index.html" variations) just gets a 404. It just seems like Tomcat is silently ignoring my webapp.

What information can I get to determine why this might be happening?
