Description Ivan 2010-11-07 21:04:22 UTC
From the pom file of tomcat-catalina-ha, it depends on the tomcat-catalina. But one class HTMLManagerServlet in the tomcat-catalina has a reference to a class BackupManager in the tomcat-catalina-ha.  Is there a way to remove the recursive dependency between those two components ?
    By the way, there mightbe a NullPointerException issue while using the BackupManager in the HTMLManagerServlet.
    ---> line.523
     Manager manager = ctxt.getManager();
                if (manager instanceof BackupManager && showProxySessions) {
                    args[5] = new Integer(
                } else if (ctxt.getManager() != null){
                    args[5] = new Integer(manager.getActiveSessions());
                } else {
                    args[5] = new Integer(0);

As was pointed out on the referenced thread there is no NPE risk here.

Fixed in trunk and will be in 7.0.5 onwards.
