Subject Re: Jars not being loaded from WEB-INF/lib
Date Mon, 10 Apr 2006 00:37:13 GMT

The jar files were in WEB-INF/lib right from the start.  This web app is 
in the exact same location as it was for NetBeans 4.1 (Tomcat 5.5.7)  
and the jar files are loaded perfectly.   I did a clean build for 
NetBeans 5 ( Tomcat 5.5.9 ) but the jar files are not been loaded.

I found nothing about "reload" in server.xml.   I am guessing this would 
only effect telling Tomcat to restart?   Since I have shut down and 
reopened Tomcat about 5 times and it still does not work,   I am guess 
this is not the issue.  If I am missing something here please let me 
know.    I really do not like the idea of putting my jars in

>Moved from Tomcat 5.0 to 5.5, as I upgraded from NetBeans 4.1 to 5.0. With Tomcat 5.0
I have several jar files in my WEB-INF/lib that worked perfectly. With Tomcat 5.5 the jar
files are not being loaded. If I copy them to CATALINA_HOME/common/lib then it works.
