Subject .zip lib files
Date Mon, 07 May 2001 15:19:49 GMT
All,

In tomcat.bat, there is logic that dynamically loads .jar files from the lib
directory. Should this be extended to include .zip files as well, since some
vendors distribute libs with the .zip extension?
 For example, Oracle distributes their jdbc thin client driver as:
classes12_01.zip

I don't believe it would be a standards issue, since the lib directory is Tomcat
specific.

:dynClasspath
set _LIBJARS=
for %%i in (%TOMCAT_HOME%\lib\*.jar) do call %TOMCAT_HOME%\bin\cpappend.bat %%i
if not "%_LIBJARS%" == "" goto gotLibJars

Any objection to adding the following line?

set _LIBJARS=%_LIBJARS%
for %%i in (%TOMCAT_HOME%\lib\*.zip) do call %TOMCAT_HOME%\bin\cpappend.bat %%i

Jonathan
