Subject Re: Tomcat 5.5 classloading blues

I agree.

Sometimes I encouter some displeasure when copy or move the jar files
to /shared/lib, which I thought should be nothing serious.

But I donot think RPMs could make installing Tomcat a mess.

And, indeed, "just sticking everything in the war file" is more portable :)
