Subject RE: [jira] Commented: (ODE-239) Ode server fails with null pointer exception when war is deployed inside an ear file in weblogic
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2008 18:51:13 GMT
Hi!
I was using Weblogic 9.2.0.

I specified the system.getProperty in that patch because there was some
other code that did something similar in the servlet.  It would seem
better to grab the value from the servlet context so that it would be
possible to specify the value in the web.xml file rather than in a JVM
wide system property.  Putting the value in the ServletContext would
allow for more than one ode to run in a container without clashing
directories (a somewhat unlikely scenario).
Putting the value in the ServletContext would allow for the
configuration to be set in our installer rather than modifying the app
server startup scripts.
-Doug.

Matthieu Riou commented on ODE-239:
-----------------------------------

Actually there are already ways to externalize the configuration (the
content of the conf directory) and the working directory (where
processes are deployed). These are the mechanisms that I'd assume you'd
use for clustering. Where the root directory is used directly is usually
for immutable stuff, like our WSDLs and such. But if this gives to a
null in an EAR deployment, then a way to set it is needed.

Btw, forgot to ask, which app server are you using?

> I dropped the ode.war inside an ear file since we may wish to deploy
it as part of our application.
> When I did so, I got a NullPointerException.  
> The expression config.getServletContext().getRealPath("/WEB-INF")
evaluated to null.
> I would like to propose a fix like the following:
