Java Buildpack: Stale Files Outside of WEB-INF


Daniel Jones
 

Hi all,

If one pushes a .war containing files outside of WEB-INF, deletes the app,
then pushes a new version where those files outside of WEB-INF have been
changed, these changes are not reflected in the running app. Is this
expected behaviour? The buildpack is forked, from commit 71ab82a
<https://github.com/cloudfoundry/java-buildpack/commit/71ab82af4cd95465dcbc35eb89f3ac9dc9431e9a>
.

I was just about to go about creating a repeatable test case and raising a
GitHub issue, but figured it'd be best to check that this isn't the way
it's *supposed* to work.

For the record I realise that resources should be in WEB-INF by convention,
but the users where I am are expecting feature parity with non-CF Tomcat
which unpacks the whole .war.

Many thanks in advance,
