--- Comment #5 from Mark Thomas <> ---
This is going to be very tricky to implement without changes to the JarScanner
interface. That makes it tempting to defer this until Tomcat 8.

Users that want exactly the specification defined behaviour can add the JARs to
the org.apache.catalina.startup.ContextConfig.jarsToSkip

Scanning for SCIs in container JARs is only implied and then in terms of an SCI
for JSP functionality. Tomcat doesn't (yet) use an SCI in this case. If it did,
we could hard-code the addition of that SCI and not rely on scanning anyway.

CATALINA_BASE/lib is the combined common/server/shared class loader. JARs in
the shared loader are *meant* to be treated as if they are part of the web app
(Tomcat specific extension).

Given all of the above, I am going to mark this as WONTFIX.
