"The requested resource is not available" if symlink in WebApp directory

           Summary: "The requested resource is not available" if symlink in
                    WebApp directory
           Product: Tomcat 4
           Version: 4.1.25
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Webapps:Administration
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: d.tonhofer@m-plify.com


This may or may not be a bug. But even if it's not a bug, it's a darn
confusing error message:

I do not want to copy a jar file to my-webapp/WEB-INF/lib/

So instead a symlink to the jar:

$ ln -s /some/other/place/the.jar my-webapp/WEB-INF/lib/the.jar 

After restarting Tomcat, I want to access a servlet in another jar
(which has nothing to do with anything in the.jar)

I get a Tomcat error:

"The requested resource /servlet/some.servlet.not.in.the.jar is not available"

Very confusing.

I copy the jar bodily....things work!
