> Tomcat redeployment JAR locking
> -------------------------------
>                 Key: CLK-418
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLK-418
>             Project: Click
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: core
>    Affects Versions: 1.5 RC2
>         Environment: Tomcat 5.5.25, Click 1.5-M2, JDK 1.5, click-examples
>            Reporter: Malcolm Edgar
> I am seeing intermitt Tomcat auto deployment issues, where there is a lock on a JAR in click-examples/WEB-INF/lib/ which cannot be deleted.
> This issue occurs regularly for a period and then does not occur at all.  The JAR being locked on is fairly random.  Sometimes spring-*.jar or log4*.jar
> To fix this issue you stop Tomcat, delete the click-examples directory, and then restart Tomcat. This is not a good development experience.
> This Tomcat behaviour is similar to CLK-82 when Click was scanning the classpath for files named "/click-controls.xml". In these cases however the JAR being locked on was always click-extras.

> Commenting out XmlConfigService#deployFilesInJars() fixes this issue as does setting antiResourceLocking="true" in the click-examples/META-INF/context.xml
> <Context
>    path="/click-examples"
>    reloadable="true"
>    antiJARLocking="true"
>    antiResourceLocking="true">
>    <ResourceLink
>       name="users"
>       global="UserDatabase"
>       type="org.apache.catalina.UserDatabase"/>
> </Context>
> I can see two solutions to this problem. First is we heavily document deployment options on application servers:
> * Tomcat set    antiJARLocking="true" and  antiResourceLocking="true"
> * WebLogic unpack any click resources into your web applications /click directory before deploying
> The other option is to make this configurable JAR deployment configurable:
>   <click-app deploy-jar-resources="true">
>   ..
>   </click-app>
> Otherwise we will get continual issues raised about Tomcat hot deployment.
> Note this issue does not occur on JBoss as they create a new webapp instance each time you deploy an application.  This is a mode you can use in Tomcat as well (since JBoss uses Tomcat internally) but it is not the default Tomcat configuration.
