Subject iSeries (AS/400) unusual JDK layout problem
Date Tue, 22 Jan 2002 07:30:06 GMT
Hi to all,

I've got a little problem with our AS/400 since
they didn't respect the general layout for JDK 1.2/1.3
where java.home is xxx/jre or xxx/sdk and where tools.jar
live in xxx/lib

Sus Tomcat 3.3 couldn't find the needed tools.jar for 
JSP compilation

Choices :

- Add code in tomcat to make iSeries case handled
 (add tools.jar search in java.home/lib/ after java.home/../lib/) 
- Add directive in server.xml to specific tools.jar alternate location
  and proper code in tomcat

- Do nothing and tell IBM to fix their layout.

BTW : actually I've patched and add java.home/lib/tools.jar 
to the classpath but it's quite dirty...
