Geronimo java.endorsed.dirs support is non-functional

                 Key: GERONIMO-2440
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: startup/shutdown
    Affects Versions: 1.2
            Reporter: Rick McGuire
             Fix For: 1.2

Geronimo attempts to load classes using the java.endorsed.dirs mechanism to override classes
already resident in the JVM.  This is done by having org.apache.geronimo.system.main.Daemon
concatenate the %GERONIMO_HOME%\lib\endorsed directory to the java.endorsed.dirs system property.
 Unfortunately, the java.endorsed.dirs system property is processed during JVM startup, so
the value must be set as a -D command line option when the JVM is launched.  As a result,
the classes placed in lib/endorsed dir are not recognized as endorsed classes and the native
JVM classes are still getting picked up.
