The following known problems exist that affect Agent for Apache Tomcat 5.5 Servlet/JSP Container. This agent also supports Agent for Apache Tomcat 5.0.28 Servlet/JSP Container.
The Apache Tomcat Servlet/JSP Container bits with the .exe extension do not contain the Catalina scripts required to plug in the agent realm and filter. Therefore, Apache Tomcat Servlet/JSP Container bits with the .exe extension are not supported by the agent.
Workaround: When installing Apache Tomcat Servlet/JSP Container bits use the .zip extension. For example, for version 5.5.9, the correct compressed file supported by the agent is as follows:
Compressed files for Apache Tomcat Servlet/JSP Container are available at the Apache web site. For example, you can attempt to retrieve the compressed file specifically for version 5.5.9 using the following link: http://archive.apache.org/dist/tomcat/tomcat-5/archive/v5.5.9/bin/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9.zip.
This is a classpath issue. After installing Agent for Apache Tomcat 5.5 Servlet/JSP Container on Apache Tomcat 5.5.23, the Apache server does not start. The server log might show an error that includes the following line:
This error occurs because a jar file that was named commons-modeler.jar prior to Apache Tomcat 5.5.23 Servlet/JSP Container changed names to commons-modeler-2.0.jar in Apache Tomcat 5.5.23 Servlet/JSP Container.
Workaround: After installing Agent for Apache Tomcat 5.5 Servlet/JSP Container on Apache Tomcat 5.5.23, follow these steps:
Open the following platform specific file:
Change the name of commons-modeler.jar file to commons-modeler-2.0.jar.
Save the file.
Restart Apache Tomcat 5.5 Servlet/JSP Container.
