Tomcat module - How to use versioned warfiles
How do people use the Tomcat module if it's unable to recognise when an updated war file needs to be deployed ?
This problem is discussed in PuppetLabs ticket MODULES-1545: https://tickets.puppetlabs.com/browse...
In November 2015 a fix was described in a diff file attached to the ticket. After applying the fix to the module's war.pp the module works OK. Puppet is able to act when the supplied war filename reflects a change in version, it is also able to set the desired context root from a different parameter.
The ticket gives an example which shows where to supply the versioned warfile name and where to supply the desired context root.
That fix was suggested over a year ago but it hasn't made it into the module, why is this ?
Is there a way to make the above work without this fix ?
