Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4251) Class-Path entry in WAR manifest didn't work if entry is a directory
Date Mon, 02 Feb 2009 17:36:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4251?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12669664#action_12669664

David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-4251:
----------------------------------------

Someone needs to look at the spec again.... my recollection is that relative urls are relative
to the location of the module in the ear.  So if your module is at the ear root relative and
absolute mean the same thing but if your module is at /foo/bar/myModule.jar then ../baz/myLib.jar
would be the same as /foo/baz/myLib.jar

> 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.
