Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-2503) Webapp classloader prefers WEB-INF/lib over WEB-INF/classes
Date Thu, 19 Oct 2006 12:21:34 GMT
Webapp classloader prefers WEB-INF/lib over WEB-INF/classes
-----------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: GERONIMO-2503
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-2503
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: web
    Affects Versions: 1.1.1, 1.1
         Environment: windows and linux, jetty and tomcat
            Reporter: Nikla Ratinen


Application classloader looks in WAR's WEB-INF/lib before WEB-INF/classes. This is in violation
of servlet 2.4 (and 2.3) specification, 9.5 Directory Structure, which states:
"TheWeb application class loader must load classes from the WEB-INF/ classes directory first,
and then from library JARs in the WEB-INF/lib directory." 

This behaviour prevents web application from overriding classes and resources from included
libraries.
