Incomplete error message: java.util.zip.ZipException: No such file or directory

           Summary: Incomplete error message: java.util.zip.ZipException: No
                    such file or directory
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.0.27
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other

        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org

On startup, tomcat bombs out like so:

The reason for the error is a missing jar file.

Of course the mystery remains as to WHICH jar file, because the error message
above neglects to mention which jar file.

This leaves the user with the following options:

- Spend hours randomly shooting in the dark trying to find which jar is missing
- Spend hours setting up tomcat in a debugging environment to set a breakpoint
so that it can be seen which jar is missing.

The fix: Include the name of the jar file in the error message.
