Subject [jira] [Commented] (KARAF-1545) Jar files in lib directory require "karaf-" prefix in order to be loaded
Date Tue, 10 Jun 2014 14:58:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-1545?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14026529#comment-14026529

James Carman commented on KARAF-1545:
-------------------------------------

How about just fix the documentation?  The intended behavior was that only karaf-prefixed
jars would be loaded, so the docs are obviously wrong.

> I was trying to configure JDBC fail-over, so I put my mysql driver jar in the KARAF_HOME/lib
directory.  I kept getting ClassNotFoundExceptions.  On the advice of someone on IRC, I changed
the name to "karaf-mysql-connector-java.jar" and it started working.  Why the karaf- prefix
requirement?  If that's the intended behavior, then please update the README file in the lib
directory.  It says:
> "Any jar in this folder will be part of the main classloader used to load Karaf."
