Common.ClassLoader and Apps.ClassLoader not loading .zip files

           Summary: Common.ClassLoader and Apps.ClassLoader not loading .zip
                    files
           Product: Tomcat 3
           Version: 3.3 Final
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Unknown
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: Juha.Laiho@iki.fi


It seems to me that if class files are packaged with .zip suffix instead
of .jar, they do not get picked up by the Common.ClassLoader or
Apps.ClassLoader. Also the documentation for the new class structure
seems to indicate this.

This behaviour is inconsistent with how regular Java works -- also .zip
files are picked up from directories listed in $CLASSPATH (so, .zip files
used to be included before Tomcat 3.3).

This problem is manifest f.ex. when Oracle 8i JDBC classes are needed -
the file name for these is classes12.zip.
