WARNING: [SetPropertiesRule]{Server/Service/Engine/Host/Context} Setting property

Posted by | Posted in Tomcat | Posted on 29-11-2008

Today I was trying to deploy a web application to Tomcat server. Publishing went smoothly with no errors. So I thought everything will work fine. But when I tried to access the application, page was not coming. On further study of the log files I could see a warning message in Tomcat console. The error message was

WARNING: [SetPropertiesRule]{Server/Service/Engine/Host/Context} Setting property 'source' to 'org.eclipse.jst.jee.server:AppName' did not find a matching property.

The solution to this problem is very simple. Double click on your tomcat server. It will open the server configuration. Under server options check ‘Publish module contents to separate XML files’ checkbox. Restart your server. This time your page will come without any issues.

  1. [...] The next problem was related to Tomcat and the context properties. I solve it with the indication of this article: WARNING: [SetPropertiesRule]{Server/Service/Engine/Host/Context} Setting property [...]

  2. Thank you!!! That was a quick but important fix!

  3. Thanks.. saved me a few hours of frustation. thank you very much! :razz:

  4. Thanks! That solved my problem!

  5. Thanks! That solved my problem!

  6. <3

  7. thanks for this, worked perfectly!

  8. Yeah! :grin:

  9. i kiss u in the forhead! :* :D

  10. THX, you seem to be the only one with the right answer

  11. Thanks for the solution, but why does this fix it? What causes the issue to begin with?

  12. Thanks, very nice tip.
    Why did it happened ? Is it because I’ve changed the Eclipse version ? The error message is not clear to me.

  13. Thanks a lot for your solution :)

  14. Excellent, my friend!!!!

  15. thanks !

  16. thanks man!!!

  17. My problem turned into a quick-fix. Thanks.

  18. All is right but how to “double click the tomcat server” Sorry for such a basic question but i cant figure it out

  19. Go to Window->Show view and click on Servers. The server view will be opened. In server view you would be able to see all the servers configured and the tomcat server also will be listed there. Now double click on your server

  20. Thanks a lot, wonderful, saved few hours definitely.

  21. That worked like a charm! Thanks! But I really want to know why does this happen and why publishing to separate xml files solves the problem…

  22. THANKS!!!!

  23. Thanks..I was after this for the last 2 dys

  24. Thanks!!! Small solution for a big problem (for me)! ;-)

  25. I get the same warning but checking the box ‘Publish module contents to seperate XML files’ doesn’t do the trick for me.

    I know it’s just a warning, but I fear that the warning may be responsible for my Eclipse servlet not finding, recognizing or not just using the db2jcc.jar and db2jc_license_cu.jar that I have added for me to access db2.

    Any hints are appreciated.

  26. thank’s simple solution for complexe problem

  27. Thanks man! I was starting being crazy why my authentification doesn’t work under Eclipse. You helped a lot!

  28. Thanks.. I was looking for a solution for this for the last 2 days ;)

  29. I’m sorry , it doesn’t work.

  30. Also, the option – “Serve modules without publishing” might be there which causes the same error. Un-check it if one faces the issue

  31. thanks very much <3
