Description Ben Spiller 2005-03-31 11:17:13 UTC
We distribute the admin webapp so customers can manage users and roles, and
sometimes they press the Commit Changes button (even though it's not required
for users/group/role admin). We've noticed that ther resulting rewrite of Tomcat
config files can lead to running web applications being reloaded - which can be
disasterous for some of our critical apps.

I don't think this behaviour is a bug with Tomcat, but it IS a real problem that
users aren't warned about the potentially devastating effect of clicking Commit
Changes before it happens. A simple dialog warning of the consequences (and
mentioning that user/role admins don't need this button anyway) would be a huge
improvement.

Changing to an enhancement request.  It's one of those ever-continuing dialogs
about how big and how red the destruction button should be ;)

OK, fair enough ;o)

But it's just a boring grey button at the moment with no warning at all...

Good idea, done.
