  • Servlet configuration directory and files from M2 to current snapshots

    I downloaded a recent snapshot for the dm Server CI-R330. And noticed a few changes in the config directory with respect to the M2 release, such as the addition of tomcat-server.xml and the removal of a few other configuration files.

    Just curious about the servlet directory which was completely removed ( including context.xml, tomcat-users.xml and web.xml) is this permanent or temporary? If permanent, where will admin user access be configured ? And the other default web files be taken from ?

    We've recently moved to using Tomcat's standard configuration format as a large number of users indicated that they'd prefer the format to be one with which they're already familiar. This means that we now have tomcat-server.xml instead of the old servletContainer.config file.

    The absence of the context.xml, tomcat-users.xml and web.xml files is a temporary (and accidental) change. I've opened DMS-994 to fix this. Thanks for spotting this and reporting it.

    The changes to the other configuration files are due to the fact that we're moving towards using ConfigurationAdmin for the vast majority of dm Server's configuration (with Tomcat configuration being one of the exceptions to this).
