Subject RE: CLASSPATH and JARs
Date Wed, 01 Nov 2000 03:26:13 GMT
I believe the 'correct' place to put jars is in the WEB-INF/lib directory of
the context. I run tomcat 3.2beta6 on jdk1.3 and can say that it behaves
correctly on redhat 6.2 and win NT and win98. Note that WEB-INF must be
capital letters on unix/linux platforms, it doesn't matter on win32.

Putting jars and classes in the system classpath is asking for
maintainability issues - try to avoid at all costs...

Subject: CLASSPATH and JARs


Am using Tomcat 3.1. 

For a webapp, I have a bunch of JARs. How do I ensure that
it gets picked up in the CLASSPATH ?

Putting them in either the web-inf/lib or web-inf/classes does
not help.
