      Description

      Deployment of exploded WAR (as indicated at this Wiki page: http://www.liferay.com/web/guest/community/wiki/-/wiki/Main/Fast+Development+of+Liferay+Plugins+with+Tomcat) does not work. When a context file is copied into the hot deploy folder, Tomcat/Liferay reads the file but the app is not recognized as a webapp and therefore not deployed.

      To work correctly, the context file has to be copied directly into $TOMCAT_LIFERAY/conf/localhost/Catalina (this task should be normally handled by the Liferay hot deploy process).

      Tested with Liferay 5.2 (from trunk version 23509) with Tomcat 6.0.18 and 5.5.27.
