What happens if you deploy using the Tomcat manager application? Same error or doesn't occur then? This may help zero in on the problem.

Hi List,
Honestly, I wish Tomcat web application deployment would be easier/smarter. To pre-empt certain list members from telling me it's my fault, I can assure you my WAR itself is totally 100% no doubts valid. Perhaps it is my method of deploying that is causing the issue, I don't know. I am attempting to use the Tomcat Client Deployer (the Ant script that comes with deployer). I use it to compile the WAR and now want to deploy it to a waiting Tomcat. I ensured my Tomcat webapps folder was wiped and the conf/Catalina/localhost had no context configuration files. My WAR contains a META-INF/context.xml for deploying the context configuration. After I compile my WAR with Deployer, I call C:\apache-tomcat-5.5.12-deployer>ant -Dserver=intratest deploy
Buildfile: build.xml
   [deploy] OK - Deployed application at context path /ROOT
So it's deployed OK. I wait 5 minutes and then put a request into Tomcat. 404. Why? Because it failed to start the context which in a nutshell is all I ever get when deploying from WARs. My WAR has been exploded fully which is at least something. The logs reveal: 2005-10-07 16:18:29,882 - WARN (org.apache.catalina.startup.HostConfig:597) - A docBase D:\jakarta-tomcat\webapps\ROOT inside the host appBase has been specified, and will be ignored

It is not clear if this exception is thrown at the time when the WAR has not been exploded and of course ROOT will not exist. My META-INF/context.xml has
<Context docBase="/ROOT" reloadable="true" antiJARLocking="true" antiResourceLocking="true" 

Does nobody else have issues with using the Deployer? Is it just me having all this bad luck? Honestly I am at my wits end with this deployment. I am fed up with manually having to deploy files to our Tomcat servers, exploding them myself and then restarting Tomcat.
When will Deployer actually work?

Kindest, frustrated, Allistair.
