Subject Re: Tomcat Classpath
Date Sat, 29 Jun 2002 05:45:57 GMT
Hi Jack,

Tomcat ignores your classpath.  Believe me, this solves a *ton* of 
problems.  If you want to use the classpath, go back to using Tomcat 
2.x.x.  I wouldn't give it the time of day now that 3.3.x and 4.x.x are 
out.  Seriously, do yourself a favor and just copy the jar into 
$CATALINA_HOME/common/lib and save yourself a lot of headache.  BTW, you 
don't want to copy stuff into $CATALINA_HOME/lib that you need both your 
app and the server itself to see.  Jars in that directory will only be 
visible to your webapp.  common/lib makes jars available to both your 
webapp *and* the server.
