Hi,

I have sample.war deployed and running in tomcat. I have some contents added to webapps/sample/data. When i redeploy(auto) any new war i do not want to overwrite this folder (data). is it possible with tomcat?

application data should be in a directory on the same level as webapps so that it is not erased when you redeploy your app.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

The project code seems to be legacy code.. So i did not want touch anything there. Is there any way in tomcat to achieve this?

This is reason #2 why you should never attempt to write data to your WAR.

Reason #1 is that in a pure J2EE implementation, the WAR is a ZIP file and attempting to open and write it as a file won't work.
