Problem with Tomcat [java.lang.IllegalStateException when reloading app]
i don't know what happend. i tried to reload my app but got an error.
FAIL - Encountered exception java.lang.IllegalStateException: Container StandardContext[/app] has not been started
and ofcourse when i try to access it i get The requested resource (/app) is not available
now i'm not able to get _any_ app online. i've reinstalled tomcat. i installed earlier version of tomcat. but the bug is still there. i just can't run any app with tomcat in this machine.
can there be something i've missed?
i've tried to google more information but can't find a solution. i just learned that this is Bug 3614, and i can live with that if i can get a working tomcat pretty soon.
has anyone got the similar problem and found a solution for it? fortunately i have several servers for dev, but i like this laptop and would like to be able to use this one for development.
Have there been any modifications to your JDK?

nothing that i noticed. i installed tomcat with another version of jdk also.

When you try installing different versions, are you installing them over the top of the previous, or fresh installs to different locations?

fresh install and different location. i changed JAVA_HOME to point to new dir so tomcat used that jdk.
i'm not sure what i really did, but now i'm able to load some apps, while some give IllegalStateException.
i took webdav, renamed it as web2. tried to load it. worked fine. i renamed it to app. i get IllegalStateException?

Can you post the whole stack trace? It sounds like it just doesn't like naming a webapp 'app'. How strange.
