Date Sat, 06 May 2017 16:43:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-9347?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15999487#comment-15999487
] 

James Yong commented on OFBIZ-9347:
-----------------------------------

For testing, you can unzip a WAR file and put the folder under *webapp* folder as shown below
{code}
[plugins]
    -> [your plugin name]
        -> ofbiz-component.xml
        -> [webapp]
            -> [put your unzip WAR file here]
{code}

Contents of ofbiz-component.xml will be something like
{code}
<ofbiz-component name="camunda"
        xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
        xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="http://ofbiz.apache.org/dtds/ofbiz-component.xsd">
    <webapp name="camunda"
            type="standard"
        title="Camunda"
        server="camunda-server"
        location="webapp/camunda"
        mount-point="/camunda"/>
</ofbiz-component>
{code}

> Not all libraries can be embedded and used via Java API. 
> Some, like CAS SSO, need to be loaded as a standard web application and access via REST
API. 
> So we need to allow OFBiz to load standard web application where there is no controller.xml
and the jar files residing in WEB-INF/lib folder.  
> Proposing to add an attribute named 'type' to the 'webapp' tag at ofbiz-component.xml,
i.e.
> {code}
> <webapp name="myapp" 
>         type="standard"  <--------------- new proposed attribute
>         title="Myapp"
>         server="myapp-server"
>         location="webapp/myapp"
>         mount-point="/myapp"/>
> {code}
> This new attribute will help to differentiate standard web applications from those in
OFBiz, and allows Catalina Container to load them accordingly.
> When type="standard", will load as standard web application.
> When type is empty, load according to OFBiz way.
> There are some discussions on this at https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/4d1b501c2ce6297ab0b41712b61c0fcb8881510512deaf380b49ab9d@%3Cdev.ofbiz.apache.org%3E
