Subject Re: Utility Project/Library (Geronimo + Eclipse) - how to?
Date Fri, 17 Dec 2010 20:56:55 GMT

I would suspect that one needs to add utility JARs via "Deployment
Assembly" under Eclipse Helios and via "J2EE Module Dependencies"
under pre Eclipse Helios versions. The "Java Build Path" does NOT do
the trick cause it is a development time setting rather than a runtime

Technically your web modules MANIFEST.MF file should contain a
classpath entry via Class-Path listing the utility module.
