Description randy hoffman 2007-06-26 11:41:53 UTC
When deploying an app from a context descriptor inside a webapp/META-INF
directory via context.xml, the className is ignored and the context is created
as a StandardContext.  I've tried to use a ReplicatedContext class in a cluster
from this configuration and it does not work.  However, it does work if i move
the context.xml to $CATALINA_BASE/conf/[EngineName]/[HostName]/webapp.xml.

This issue and some related issues have been fixed in trunk and proposed for 6.0.x

The patch to trunk had some issues. I am working on a better one.
Comment 3 Mark Thomas 2008-11-08 17:50:20 UTC
I finally got around to taking another look at this.  A new patch has been committed to trunk and proposed for 6.0.x.

This has been fixed in 6.0.x and will be in 6.0.19 onwards.
