    Overriding webapp context parameters

    David Gadbois Newbie

      Using JBoss AS 4.0.4 GA. Given a war file whose web.xml specifies a context parameter, how can I override the parameter value without modifying the web.xml file? In a standalone Tomcat, if web.xml has

       <context-param>
       <param-name>com.foo.PARAM</param-name>
       <param-value>FOO</param-value>
       </context-param>
      


      I can override it by specifying

       <Parameter name="com.foo.PARAM" value="BAR" override="false"/>
      


      I have tried a couple of things, neither of which works:

      1. Specifying another version of the context-param element in deploy/jbossweb-tomcat55.sar/conf/web.xml fails because there is a duplicate check.

      2. Specifying a Context element with the Parameter element in deploy/jbossweb-tomcat55.sar/server.xml fails because the Catalina config parser does not know how to find the webapp.

      Any help would be appreciated.
