Subject [jira] [Commented] (MTOMCAT-189) additionalClassesDirs parameter handling expanded to include run and run-war goals
Date Tue, 04 Dec 2012 16:32:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MTOMCAT-189?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13509840#comment-13509840

Nick Lloyd commented on MTOMCAT-189:
------------------------------------

This is meant to support modifications that you can make to a regular tomcat installation
via the conf/catalina.properties files where you can add directories to the different classloaders.
 Why this matters is if you want to have directories containing configuration files that you
want to access across servlets via the classpath.

Different beast from adding dependencies.

Note that this functionality already exists in tomcat6-maven-plugin for the run goal, I am
simply expanding it to include run-war and also incorporating the change into tomcat7-maven-plugin.

>            Reporter: Nick Lloyd

> I contributed the original patch to add the functionality to add additional directories
to the classpath for the run goal.  This patch expands on that, adding the functionality to
both run and run-war goals in the tomcat6 and tomcat7 plugin artifacts.
> Please review and incorporate as you see fit.  My organization is using this internally.
