Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4251) Class-Path entry in WAR manifest didn't work if entry is a directory
Date Mon, 02 Feb 2009 14:43:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4251?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12669616#action_12669616

Frank Meilinger commented on GERONIMO-4251:
-------------------------------------------

Hi Ivan,

Yes. I think the path "/" means the root of the ear-file. So I think you are right, the directory
"/myLibs" should have the same meaning as the directory name "myLibs" becaue the "current
directory" makes sense to be the root of the acual ear-file.


example of ear-file structure:

/
  /lib
  /META-INF
  /myLibs

In this sample, an class-path entry of "myLibs" should be the same as "/myLibs" because "/"
is the root of the ear.

Greetings,
 Frank

> 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.
