Subject [jira] Commented: (SYNAPSE-524) Patches are not applied to the WAR distribution
Date Tue, 24 Mar 2009 16:41:50 GMT


Asankha C. Perera commented on SYNAPSE-524:

It could be any classpath, which will be checked before the web apps.. However the point I
want to make is that there is no advantage we gain by trying to put the extracted classes
of patches into WEB-INF/classes, since for any patches to be applied later on, that will anyway
require manual intervention. These tasks are best left for the admins.

> I noticed that the patches (e.g. httpcore-nio-4.0-patch-httpcore-193.jar) are bundled
with the ZIP distribution, but not with the Web application. This could cause inconsistent
behavior between a standalone deployment and a deployment into an application server.
> According to the servlet spec (SRV.9.5 in v2.4), "The Web application class loader must
load classes from the WEB-INF/classes directory first, and then from library JARs in the WEB-INF/lib
directory." This gives a hint how to bundle these patches into the WAR so that the modified
classes have priority.
