Subject RE: jar's still not picked up in WEB-INF/lib
Date Wed, 01 Nov 2000 14:34:08 GMT
The Context setup is for the web-app.
I do not think it is a good idea to put app-depedent
libs under $TOMCAT/lib. 
Just for experimentation, I tried placing the JARs under
$TOMCAT/lib and $TOMCAT/webapps/web-inf/lib.  Does
not work.
Tried with 3.1 and 3.2beta6 on WinNT 4.0.

I would definitely set up a context in server.xml like this:
<Context path="/Oasis"
 reloadable="true" >
That should solve you problem.  Otherwise, just put the .jar files in the
D:\Java\jakarta-tomcat\lib directory.  Then the jars would be available for
all applications served by tomcat.

I am experiencing the same problem that others have reported on this topic.
I explicitly set my Tomcat classpath to be sure of no redundancies in the
jars.  I have a Tomcat startup batch file with one line that adds in all the
jars in my WEB-INF\lib to the classpath explicitly.  When I comment that
line out, I get the classnotfound errors.  When I put it back in, my web app
runs fine.  Obviosly I want the line commented out and have the jars picked
up in the lib dir, but that aint happening.
Because the jars work when explicitly included in the classpath, I conclude
that the jars are not corrupt.  I also conclude, based on commenting out the
explicit lib jars classpath, that there are not redundant jars in the
classpath.  I have also checked other sources for possible classpath jar
redundancies and I am just not finding any.
 I am running under Win2000 using jdk1.3.  
These is the exact dir structure I have set up:
I have gone through Craig McClanahans list of things to check and all seems
to be as it should.
Any hope for a fix?  Should I continue to look at my config?  I have heard
some people talk about setting up an explicit context for the app in the
server.xml.  Does this solve the problem consistantly?
