    Default Behaviour differences between war file and exploded directory

    Hi,

    I'm baffled by differences in how my web app behaves when deploy in a war f=
    ile and when deployed in exploded directory.

    Firstly when I deploy in exploded directory format (using wldeploy in ant) =
    - the jsps do not precompile. However, when I deploy the war file - again =
    using ant and wldeploy - precompile works just fine - and general performan=
    ce seems better.

    Secondly - the webapp has a pdf file - which is used as a template to dynam=
    ically produce a document. When deployed
    in exploded format - the webapp works fine and is able to read the pdf. Ho=
    wever, when I deploy in war file, the pdf cannot be read.

    Surely the behaviour should be the same whether we deploy as a war or explo=
    ded.

    Someone please help

    Some behaviors will be different between a WAR file deployment and an explo=
    ded WAR deployment.

    With respect to JSP precompile, you just say "they do not precompile", so I=
    can't tell anything about that.

    When you read files from an exploded WAR, you can reference them in two way=
    s: as a resource, or as an absolute file path. When you read files from a =
    WAR file, you can only read files as a resource, and not as an absolute fil=
    e path. You're not giving any information about how you're reading the fil=
    e, so I can't tell about that either.

    You'd have to provide more detail to get better answers.
