Hi,

After running into some RMI problems trying to deploy content from Alfresco to a Server Receiver on Ubuntu 8.04 / Tomcat 5 using WCM Community Edition 2.1.0, I tried manually installing on Tomcat 6.

Alfresco starts up fine, but in order to get WCM working, I had to put the bootstrap file in an unexpected place.

When building Alfresco using alfresco-community-tomcat-2.1.0.tar.gz, the WCM bootstrap file is moved to

/opt/alfresco/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/wcm-bootstrap-context.xml

However when deploying in Tomcat 6 using alfresco-community-war-2.1.0.tar.gz and alfresco-community-wcm-2.1.0.tar.gz, that had no effect, and I had to move it to

/opt/alfresco/tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/extension/wcm-bootstrap-context.xml

Is there something I should do in order for Alfresco to pick up extensions in the original directory? There's dozens of XML files in there - I'm suspecting that they're not being picked up by Alfresco.
