tomcat7:run does not load HandlesTypes in application classes

                 Key: MTOMCAT-135
             Project: Apache Tomcat Maven Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: tomcat7
    Affects Versions: 2.0
         Environment: Mac OS X, Apple JDK 1.6
            Reporter: Gildas Cuisinier
            Assignee: Olivier Lamy (*$^¨%`£)

Spring 3.1 brings a SpringServletContainerInitializer, that has annotation @HandlesTypes(WebApplicationInitializer.class).

In my application, I have a WebApplicationInitializer directly in my war. This one is compiled
and put in WEB-INF/classes.

When launching with tomcat7:run-war, my WebApplicationInitializer is correctly found by tomcat
and provided to SpringServletContainerInitializer.
But with tomcat7:run, I've this line in logs :

INFO: No Spring WebApplicationInitializer types detected on classpath

It seems that the problems come from the ContextConfig classe (from tomcat source), in method
webConfig that specificly search a "WEB-INF/classes" : 

  // Step 4. Process /WEB-INF/classes for annotations
                // This will add any matching classes to the typeInitializerMap
                if (ok) {
                    // Hack required by Eclipse's "serve modules without
                    // publishing" feature since this backs WEB-INF/classes by
                    // multiple locations rather than one.
                    NamingEnumeration<Binding> listBindings = null;
                    try {
                        try {
                            listBindings = context.getResources().listBindings(
                        } catch (NameNotFoundException ignore) {
                            // Safe to ignore
