Uh, that's not nice. The default catalog is defined by "/WEB-INF/...."
and this is loaded from the context directory.
Now, you say that if I define the "local-catalog" with "/..." then
this should *not* be loaded from the context directory, but
it should be assumed that this is an absolute path, right?
Now, there is something wrong with this approach. We can easily
change (which should be the 'correct' solution) that a path
starting with "/" is treated as an absolute path. So
if you want to load from the context directory, you have
to specify "WEB-INF/.." instead of "/WEB-INF".
But using a starting "/" with two different behaviours is imho
too confusing.
What do you think? Changing the above is absolutely simple.
Or did I oversee something?
