Subject Re: TOMCAT3.2 BUG
Date Sat, 27 Jan 2001 18:39:32 GMT
I have tried to put a similar question in this newsgroup, without getting any
answers. Also tried other places, like the discussiong forum at Sun.
This is somewhat curious, because hopefully we are not the only ones trying to
access EJB's from JSP-pages.
Fact is:
The classes (and other resources, like needed when accessing
remote objects like EJB's from JSP have to reside in the classpath used when
Tomcat is started. It does not work if they are put under the web-application
WEB-INF catalog. (BTW, this also applies eg. to the JRun 3.0 JSP-engine.) I
think the problem is that different classloaders are involved here. If you put
the class-definition for eg. an Enity Bean in a jar-file that is placed in
WEB-INF/lib, an Exception is thrown from when the
remote object is received from the server (because the class defintion is not
found). Putting it in Tomcat's lib-directory "solves" this problem. Similar
problem is with the classes you mention.
Question is:
Where do the problem belong? Should it be posted as a bug in JDK 1.3?
Or should JSP-engines like Tomcat and JRun handle the situation?
I'm not sure, and it would be interesting to hear other opinions on this issue.
