Subject Re: ClassNotFoundException when using war file (Tomcat 3.2.3)
Date Thu, 01 Nov 2001 14:34:03 GMT
I got my web application to work in tomcat 4.0.1 (Catalina). In Tomcat 4.0.1, the
order of the contents in the web.xml seems to matter (E.g. All <servlet> definition
must be before the <servlet-mapping> etc.). Except for the change in the web.xml,
my war seems to working in Tomcat 4.0.1. This makes me wonder if the feature of
loading the classes from jar files in WEB-INF/lib/ was fully functional in 3.2.3
release at all !!!. Has anyone had any success with this in Tomcat 3.2.3 ?

Thanks
