    Error during restartContext

    Gary Moore Newbie

      Still have an issue with restartContext and finally got around to creating a sample to recreate it:

      Error for the sample shows:

      09:10:51,234 INFO [HostConfig] restartContext(/check)

      web.xml:

       My Hello World servlet.

       <url-pattern>/test/hello-world</url-pattern>
       </servlet-mapping>
      </web-app>


      Host settings in Server.xml:

      <Host name="localhost" autoDeploy="true" deployOnStartup="false" deployXML="false">
      
       <!-- Default context parameters -->
       <DefaultContext cookies="true" crossContext="true" override="true" reloadable="true"/>
      
       </Host>
      


      HelloServlet:

      package test;
      
      import java.io.*;
      import javax.servlet.http.*;
      import javax.servlet.*;
      
      public class HelloServlet extends HttpServlet
      {
      
       public void init() throws ServletException
       {
       }
      
       public void doGet ( HttpServletRequest request,
       HttpServletResponse response)
       throws ServletException, IOException
       {
       PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
      
       out.println("Hello, betty!");
       out.close();
       }
      }
      


      No context.xml.

      To get the error just touch the web.xml.

      Running 3.2.6 with Tomcat 5.0. Let me know if I need to post any other settings.

      Are we missing a necessary setting to get this to work?

      Any direction would be appreciated!
