Tomcat4: Creation of the naming context failed:

Tomcat4: Creation of the naming context failed:

Tomcat4: Creation of the naming context failed:

Hello everybody,

I've got some trouble while deploying a webapplication into a running Tomcat4 environment.
The application folder itself exists on file system containing everything that is needed. I removed the old version of the application within the Tomcat manager.

Afterwards I deployed the application using the following syntax:
http://<tomcat-url>/manager/install?path=/<context path>&war=file:///<context directory location>

The above described works fine on my lokal tomcat installation (same version) but does not work on another server. I'getting the following message:

NamingContextListener[/Standalone/localhost/<context path>]: Creation of the naming context failed: javax.naming.NamingException: Context is read only

I've checked every directory in question none of them is read only!

Does anybody know whats wrong here?

Many thanks in advance
Best regards

RE: Tomcat4: Creation of the naming context failed:

Hm, seems that the read only issue is not my problem but one JAR I have within WEB-INF/lib which classes cannot be found during the servlets init() method! But this JAR works fine within my local tomcat installation (same version) even with autodeploy and it works fine on the test environment.

As soon as I unpack this JAR into WEB-INF/classes everything works fine but this cannot the solution!

What's wrong here?
