Comment 1 Alistair Bush (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-08-20 08:58:59 UTC
Where did you get the examples app from?

http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/java/tomcat6-guide.xml#doc_chap4_sect5
Comment 2 Michał Kudła 2009-08-20 16:07:30 UTC
from =www-servers/tomcat-6.0.20
I find, that examples are not compiled. Directory classes contains ony .java files
Comment 3 Beju 2009-10-01 10:05:25 UTC
I am also experiencing this bug.
Comment 4 Harry Holt 2009-11-03 15:40:58 UTC
It seems that nothing is built other than the basic Tomcat container stuff.  If you run ant from the /var/lib/tomcat-6/webapps directory, it will build the ROOT application.  You can then do `'ln -s ../build/ROOT ROOT' in that directory and you'll have a working ROOT application.

The build scripts for the docs application is nowhere to be found after the install.  Looking at the ebuild it appears to not even try to build them, it just copies the raw files from the upstream source into the directories, so you end up with junk in there instead of a working application.
Comment 5 Arsen Shnurkov 2009-11-08 07:08:32 UTC
I have the same bug.

I did 
cd /var/lib/tomcat-6/webapps && ant && ln -s ../build/ROOT ROOT
.

Tomcat shows it's interface. 
But now I have who identical set of files:
- one under folder /var/lib/tomcat-6/webapps
- another under /var/lib/tomcat-6/webapps/ROOT
Comment 6 Mike Weissman 2009-11-08 14:40:31 UTC
This bug only effects the examples, the summary should be changed to reflect that. 

Comment#4 is correct, the example applications are NOT built during the build of the Catalina Core like they have in the past, this is in part to the security issues with the example applications, by default we shouldn't install applications that are insecure, that should be a user decision.

Comment#4 was not about the example applications.  The ROOT tomcat app is different from the example webapp (and the manager and host-manager, which work, but are installed in odd locations, without making the required changes to the ROOT app, so all the links end up broken.  The ROOT may or may have some security issues, but with the default install without any users configured, the functionality won't work anyway without setting up users first.

As far as the examples go, I haven't figured out yet how to get those to work yet.  There is a USE flag to install it or not, but that just adds the files.  Tomcat sees it as a valid stopped application, but is unable to start it (results in 

FAIL - Application at context path /examples could not be started

)
