Search for startapps.xml in wrong folder

Hello everyone,

we use the startapps.xml in cis/config to start our own application together with application designer. (We did this in older version as well).

Now we updated to version v2.2.2 of Application Designer. Everything is working fine, but tomcat has some strange error messages in its log file:

It seems that application designer takes every single sub-directory of cis and looks under cisconfig/startapps.xml for the right startapps.xml file. But since there are no such subdirectories, messages like these are logged: …\apache-tomcat-5.5.17\webapps\cis\cis\cisconfig\startapps.xml (Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden) …\apache-tomcat-5.5.17\webapps\cis\cisdocumentation\cisconfig\startapps.xml (Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden)

… for every subdirectory.

I tried to find a configuration file where this wrong directory “cisconfig” is set but I could not find any.

In v2.1, there were no log entries like this.

Can you help us?


Hi Tobias,

with V2.2 your projects may contain a “cisconfig” sub directory. You can place…

  • Editor Extensions (editor_*.xml)
  • Control Libraries (controllibraries.xml)
  • Start Apps (startapps.xml)

…within that directory. The project can be “self containing unit” - with less dependencies to the outside world (whole webapp).

Unfortunately the run to locate /cisconfig directories logs that “FileNotFoundException”. Just ignore the messages for now - with next update V223 issue will be handled in a better way.

Regards! Martin
