Subject RE: velocity.properties isn't being read
Date Thu, 24 Jul 2008 15:55:54 GMT
Cheers for you help so far Nathan.

The AutoMatchingServlet extends VelocityViewServlet.

I've checked the logs and yes, the WebappLoader is being used and the webapp.resource.loader.path
is being set to /templates/

So not sure why it doesn't pick up the template.

the directory structure for my automatch webapp is

$CATALINA_HOME/webapps/automatch/
        WEB-INF/
                web.xml
                velocity.properties
        templates/
                trade_profile.vm



the call to getTemplate is simply...

Template template = Velocity.getTemplate("trade_profile.vm");


Here are the relevant sections from the localhost and catalina log files...

Does the AutoMatchingServlet extend the VelocityViewServlet or
VelocityLayoutServlet?  If not, then it needs to do so (or else you
have a more work cut out for you :).  If it does extend one of those,
then i'm very confused as to why this isn't working, and would next
want to see what your logs say when you load the servlet.
