I'm looking to set the property 'allowLinking' for my web application. The application is deployed by putting the war file into the 'deploy' folder.
The war file contains a context.xml file in the META-INF folder with the allowLinking change I'm interested in using. If I deploy the web app in stand-alone tomcat (version 6) then everything works fine. The war is unpacked and the custom context file goes into $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost/web-app-name.xml.
However, when I deploy the webapp in jboss (version 4 right now, will be moving to 5 soon), the web app deploys, but linking isn't allowed. Where does this context file get copied to (i.e., what is the equivalent of $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost for jboss)?
The only way I can get it to work is to modify the global context.xml file located at $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/deploy/jboss-web.deployer. By changing the allowLinking there everything works fine. Otherwise, I get a 404.
How do I change this setting just for the web application? Why isn't the context.xml file in the war package being picked up?
