Class-Path entry in WAR manifest didn't work if entry is a directory
--------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: GERONIMO-4251
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4251
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
    Affects Versions: 2.1.2
         Environment: Geronimo 2.1.2 on Windows XP
            Reporter: Frank Meilinger


Hi,

it's not possible to define an Class-Path element in the WARs manifest, if it's a directory.
 I try to access jar files packed in the EARs lib/ directory from within a WAR module.

e.g. this will work:
Class-Path: a.jar b.jar

but this doesn't work:
Class-Path: lib/

If a directory is specifyed, I receive the following error:

15:20:13,170 ERROR [DirectoryHotDeployer] Unable to deploy: Manifest class path
entries must end with the .jar extension (J2EE 1.4 Section 8.2): module=../
org.apache.geronimo.common.DeploymentException: Manifest class path entries must
 end with the .jar extension (J2EE 1.4 Section 8.2): module=../
        at org.apache.geronimo.deployment.DeploymentContext.addManifestClassPath
(DeploymentContext.java:419)
...

I think this is definitely an error because the JEE5 specification section 8.2.1 explicitely
allows directories in manifest Class-Path entries.
