Subject location for keystore/truststore inside sar?
Date Tue, 14 May 2002 21:33:51 GMT
Where is the default location for keystore/truststore inside sar? Can these
files be included during build process using ant sar target and/or how whey
can be deployed to a phoenix application (any recommendations)?

Regards, Andrei

PS thanks for comments on my previous questions.

Previously when deploying an application it would extract the jars and
into $PHOENIX_HOME/apps/myapp/SAR-INF/lib. Then these jars are loaded by
URLClassLoader and the application is run.

However a problem occurs when you try to redeploy the same application while
running. Once loaded via the URLClassLoader, the JVM caches the jars in
memory - thus even if you change the jars on the filesystem you will still
using the classes from the old jars.

Using a temporary "work" directory gets around this (and is similar to what
tomcat/jboss/other app servers do). Basically the jars are loaded from a new
directory every time they are deployed meaning that JVM will not cache them.

The bug entry for it is at


But unfortunately it has not been extensively documented yet.
