           Summary: Differentiate between global JAR files and those used by
                    webapp config.xml
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.5.9
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: junk@bbs.darktech.org


To my understanding, any JAR file placed in common/lib becomes global and all
webapps automatically see them in their classpath. As well, it seems that a
webapp's configuration file (conf/.../*.xml) requires a specific JAR in its
classpath -- such as a DB driver -- then it must be located in the global JAR
repository as well.

I am asking that we differentiate between JARs referred to by configuration
files and those that are *meant* to be global across all webapps. The problem is
that all too often we are forced to place JAR files in common/lib because our
configuration files refer to them but then this causes conflicts between
applications. One application might require one version of the JAR while another
might require another -- or some application shouldn't see a certain JAR at all
on its classpath because then it might decide to use it when we don't want it to.

Anyway, I think you get my point. Is there a trivial workaround for this
problem? If not, any idea on how to solve it?

Thank you,
Gili
