Description Severin Gehwolf 2013-11-05 05:42:38 EST
Description of problem:
/usr/lib/systemd/system/tomcat@.service describes how to use tomcat with custom CATALINA_BASE in /var/lib/tomcats/name. However, directory /var/lib/tomcats does not exist.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q tomcat

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install tomcat
2. ls /var/lib/tomcats

Actual results:
No such file or directory

Expected results:
Empty directory exists.

Additional info:
If custom tomcats start to own this directory chaos will occur if more than one of those is installed. Getting file conflicts. Such custom tomcats should only own /var/lib/tomcats/<name> NOT /var/lib/tomcats itself.
