Have a look at the following threads.
http://www.jboss.org/modules/bb/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=forums/ this is only in 2.4.4. I'll apply the
change to 3.0 after I've had some sleep.
If nobody beats me to it :-)
It will need the Jetty/Jasper fix to do JSPs :-(
I know there have been recent changes to the way Jetty reuses it's temporary directory.
If someone will confirm that this problem still exists with the latest JBoss3/Jetty4 cvs, I'll look into it.
On further searching, this bug already seems to be registered against Jetty.
I'll keep an eye on it and report back here if I see any movement.
The problem seems to be in Jasper - the JSP engine, so you are likely to see the same behaviour in Catalina as well.
so will there be a webapps directory under jetty/jboss very soon?
