Jruby+Warbler dying start-up in Tomcat6

I’ve warbled up my Jruby on Rails app and jars, but when I deploy it to
my Tomcat6 env, I get this:

SEVERE: Warning: error application could not be initialized
org.jruby.rack.RackInitializationException: private method chomp' called for nil:NilClass from file:/opt/trooptube-dev/work/Catalina/localhost/_/WEB-INF/lib/jruby-rack-0.9.2.jar!/jruby/rack/servlet_helper.rb:161:ininstance’

My web.xml (generated by warbler) includes the following:

public.root /

Does anyone know why this might be happening?

And presumably this works ok outside of Warbler, yes?

Yes, I can start the app on OSX with jruby -S mongrel_rails start.

Hmm, I’m not an expert in J2EE compliance, but this post seems relevant:

http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/xmlgraphics-fop-users/200504.mbox/[email protected]>

Since it seems like this is a problem that hasn’t been encountered
before, I’m guessing there isn’t a standard work-around?

Thanks,
Chris

Hmm, it looks like for some reason Tomcat is returning null from
ServletContext.getRealPath. Any clue why? I’ve read in a few other
places that not all servers implement this method. Seems like it’s
about time to implement an alternative.

The only one would be to figure out how to force Tomcat into
“exploded” mode, until I figure out a way to detect paths without
using getRealPath.

That seems to have done the trick. Thanks for your help.
