           Summary: provide a property to the wepapp loader classloader to
                    pick classes from more than web-inf/classes location
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.5.20
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: quartz12h@yahoo.com


In development mode of complex project with many output folders in order to
enable the hot code replacement in an IDE, it would be very helpful to 
provide a property for the wepapp loader classloader to pick classes from more
than the web-inf/classes location.

For example: a super project has 3 projects: mainapp, commoncode1, commoncode2.

All 3 projects cannot safely point to the web-inf-classes because they will
scrub each other out upon rebuild. Having the capacity to add folders, zips and
jars outside the servlet spec normal folders would be a very simple workaround.
We would target these 3 projects output folders.

To keep it simple, the server.xml could receive a coma-separated list of
file/folder urls (or paths) in a single property for the standard "loader" tag.
