> In MyFaces users list, it has been reported that Spring and JSF are slow in GAE when
they start, because it is necessary to scan the classpath for .faces-config.xml or .taglib.xml
or annotations.
> It is possible to put myfaces jars and other jsf related jars outside /WEB-INF/lib folder,
but in GAE we can skip this limitation, so it becomes more effective to indicate the jar files
to scan in a web config param:
> org.apache.myfaces.GAE_JSF_JAR_FILES
> MyFaces jars does not need to be scanned so with this param it is possible to set:
>     <context-param>
>         <param-name>org.apache.myfaces.GAE_JSF_JAR_FILES</param-name>
>         <param-value>none</param-value>
>     </context-param>
> And skip scanning at all (/WEB-INF/classes will still be scanned).
> With this changes, startup in GAE will be quick. Note this is not necessary in other
application containers, because initialization occur when the application is deployed, and
just take some seconds.
> Anyway, I consider it is worth to do it.
