Jar file is never placed in bin - but alfresco.war is correctly updated and contains correct jar and

I copy the amp file in:

D:\Alfresco\amps\myrepo-amp.amp

 

I stop Tomcat.

 

Then I uninstall.

D:\Alfresco\java\bin>java -jar ../../bin/alfresco-mmt.jar uninstall myrepo-amp ../../tomcat/webapps/alfresco.war

 

Then I install the new amp.

D:\Alfresco\java\bin>java -jar ../../bin/alfresco-mmt.jar install ../../amps/myrepo-amp.amp ../../tomcat/webapps/alfresco.war -verbose -force

 

I start Tomcat

 

The alfresco.war correctly contains the new files and new jar (e.g., my.jar inside amp). If I extract the alfresco.war, I can also see correctly the new jar file (e.g. my.jar) and other new XML files.

However, the D:\Alfresco\tomcat\webapps\alfresco\WEB-INF\lib never gets the new jar of my.jar file.

 

The WEB-INF\lib had an older copy of "my.jar" which I deleted manually from before doing any install. 

After the new install of amp, the "my.jar" never makes it to the WEB-INF\lib directory.

For that matter, I manually copied "my.jar" in the WEB-INF\lib and restarted Tomcat and re-started Tomcat.

After doing that, I am not getting any error in the start-up of Tomcat (Tomcat started successfully, no error in the log files),  but the services page says 404 (Not found) error. 

https://mydomaino/service/index

I doublechecked inside alfresco.war (which got created by install) that it indeed has all the new and correct XML and class files and the new jar file. I manually copied the my.jar inWEB-IN\lib and restarted Tomcat.

I am fine if I have to manually copy my.jar yo WEB-IN\lib (although I should not).

Perhaps I am missing something else. I am not sure why I keep getting 404 error when I try to display the sercice/index.html page.

Am I missing anything? Any thoughts?

Re: Edited URL in an existing Java-backed websctript is now showing up

Check that your generated artifact is correctly deployed.

Go to <tomcat_dir>/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/lib and find your artifact. First of all, check that there's only one customized jar in this folder. When you change artifact versions, old jars remain there. Clean up old jars if that's the case. 

Next, open your jar with any zip tool, and check that it effectively contains your modified file. If that's not the case, stop tomcat and execute apply_amps with the -force option.

Start tomcat, and check again that your deployed jar contains the changes you expect.

Hope it helps.
