How To: Allow unpacking of WAR file exported from ArcGIS Manager for Java Platform

Summary

By default, when using the ArcGIS/ArcIMS Manager for the Java Platform and exporting the Web application, the WAR file generated is not unpacked when deployed under any Servlet Engine or Web Application Server.

This behavior is due to a setting in the WAR file.

Instructions provided describe how to remove this option to allow unpacking of the WAR file to modify the Web application without using any integrated development environment (IDE), such as Eclipse.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to:
    C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\java\manager\config\applications\build\WebContent\META-INF.
  2. Open the file 'Context.xml' in a text editor.
  3. Replace the following line:

    Code:
    <Context unpackWAR="false">

    with:

    Code:
    <Context unpackWAR="true">


  4. Save the file.
