Subject [OT] How to write/use Tomcat's war classloader
Date Sat, 08 Apr 2006 04:35:45 GMT

We have a sizable war file (|unpacked|) that needs to be run in certain 
way outside of Tomcat.  To do this, we created a classloader which works 
Ok except that it's very slow (using JarFile).  I know that when deploy 
apps in Tomcat, I can specify it to not to unpack (|unpackWAR = 
"false").  However, Tomcat load and run the apps quickly. I looked into 
Tomcat source, the org.apache.catalina.loader package and could not find 
anything like that.  I see WebappClassLoader, but it seems to load from 
an unpacked war, not packed war.  Does Tomcat actually unpack the war 
before loading the app?  If not, could someone point me to the right 
place to look, or give some advice on how to write this thing faster?
