Re: How to update a webapp within Tomcat4.0 keeping some (config) files from its current version to new version?

If I understood what you're saying correctly, you can war your current app and drop it into the webapps directory. You do not have to delete anything. I do not know how familiar are you with Tomcat, but you can cd into the app-directory and type jar cvf myapp.war *, this should create a war file of the current application. If the application will rewrite the configuration files when you restart then you have a problem.
