    Glad to hear it: maybe I'll be able to return the favour some time soon.

    Just tried it out and it works, thanks. Only thing, it seems I got
    everything working without the servlet package (see below).

    I guess I overlooked something 'couse this placing it in WEB-INF/classes did
    the trick.

    Very probably. Only problem, obviously, is that if I knew where the problem
    was, I'd fix it. :)
    Anyway, this deployment descriptor (is that what its' called?) seems to work
    for me:
    Funny, thought, the [tomcat_home]/webapps doesn't have a test8 directory...I
    thought it takes an app from docBase and stores it under webapps. Guess I
    was mistaken.

    Basic settings:
    "Tomcat Version: 5.x",
    "Tomcat Home: /home/tomi/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7"
    "Context declaration mode: Server.xml"
    "Config file: /home/tomi/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.7/conf/server.xml"
    "Tomcat base: " (none)
    "Projects added to classpath: " (none)
    "JRE: 1.5.0_01"
    "JVM parameters: -Dorg.apache.tapestry.disable-cache=true"
    "Source path: " (none)
    "Tomcat manager app: localhost:8080/manager"
    "manager username: " (none)
    "manager password: " (none)

    Any obvious mistakes? One that comes to mind is the lack of a current line
    highlighting during debug sessions...I think I'll be able to work that one
    out judging by the number of similar complaints on diferent forums.

    Just the classes folder, for me, it seems. :(

    As for cayenne, I've set up a tapestry global-class (application-wide class)
    that initializes the context and makes it available for all pages. Seems to
    work: I just use something like ctxt = Global.getContext(); when I load a
    page and than use the ctxt handle to execute queries. Any comments on such a

    Thanks for all the help,
