Description Krzysztof Magusiak 2009-08-30 19:28:22 UTC
After installing tomcat with examples, TOMCAT_BASE/webapps/examples/WEB-INF/classes contains only source files (*.java). These files must be compiled to make the examples work.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. USE="examples" emerge -av tomcat
2. Browse: http://localhost:8080/examples
Actual Results:  
Before the compilation, resource unavailble page is shown.

Expected Results:  
Examples should work out of the box.

Duplicate of bug 282071 which has a bad summary, this bug has a much better summary, and I will look into resolving this ASAP time permitting.

Same here, but solution above don't bring me the examples page. I had copied the build.xml in /var/lib/tomcat-6/webapps/examples/WEB-INF go into that directory and start ant. Message was: BUILD SUCCESSFUL. Than restart tomcat server.

Same with using below the "/usr/share/tomcat-6/" directory.

I'm using the "www-servers/tomcat-6.0.32-r1".

------- the page show me that content: --------
HTTP Status 404 -
type Status report
description The requested resource () is not available.
Apache Tomcat/6.0.32

Using the new ebuilds the setup is done differently. See for more info. If you build tomcat with USE=extra-webapps, deployed instances will have the examples up and running.

Thanks for the report.
