Tomcat Markers

Adding marker files to .openshift/markers will have the following effects:

Marker Effect

enable_jpda

Will enable the JPDA socket based transport on the java virtual machine running the Tomcat server. This enables you to remotely debug code running inside Tomcat.

skip_maven_build

Maven build step will be skipped

force_clean_build

Will start the build process by removing all non-essential Maven dependencies. Any current dependencies specified in your pom.xml file will then be re-downloaded.

hot_deploy

Will prevent a JBoss container restart during build/deployment. Newly build archives will be re-deployed automatically by the JBoss HDScanner component.

java7

Will run Tomcat with Java7 if present. If no marker is present then the baseline Java version will be used (currently Java6)
