Subject Help with updating the Maven Tomcat Plugin
Date Tue, 04 Feb 2014 15:25:36 GMT
Hi guys,

I'm trying to work on

Unfortunately the only thing that is left is this: the tomcat-maven-plugin
ExternalRepositoriesReloadableWebappLoader to load additional repositories
in the

ExternalRepositoriesReloadableWebappLoader extends WebappLoader

and WebappLoader implements Loader.

And before tomcat8 the org.apache.catalina.Loader interface had these 2

    public void addRepository(String repository);
    public String[] findRepositories();

so the ExternalRepositoriesReloadableWebappLoader could call
super.addRepository() and manually add repository.

But I can see in the svn log that since version 1401503 these 2 methods are
removed (not deperecated, but simply removed). And I can't seem to find any
possible way to add repository to the loader!
Can you please guide me what should be the correct way to overcome this.


Regards, Petar!
Karlovo, Bulgaria.
