Can anyone explain the need for 'org.apache.catalina.core.StandardHost.startChildren' in latest versions of JBoss Web?
Is it safe to change the behaviour back to how older versions of JBoss (pre 5.0) and Tomcat behave? (by setting the environment variable).
I can't seem to find any documentation on why it was added other than from the svn logs that
Add JBoss default for not starting contexts in init (which would cause two errors instead of just one)"
This is causing some failures for me with JBoss 5.0.0.CR1 which works fine with JBoss 4.2.x and Tomcat.
Note: this is not a tomcat issue as this feature is only present in JBoss Web.
