The problem is that I cannot guarantee that web applications running under
the embedded tomcat won't hold any duplicate jars.

If you remove the duplicate jars from the webapp, it will still find the 
classes via the same classloader used in the host application, and the 
single definition of each class will allow the casts to work.

Hi all,

I need your suggestion about working with embedded tomcat.

On a test I'm performing, I am running the embedded tomcat and installed 
webapp on it.

I need to share objects between the webapp running on the embedded tomcat
and the host VM via a set of classes which are defined both in the webapp
and the host class loaders.

The problem is that since the webapp and the host VM hold the same jars 
in different locations, a class cast exception occurs every time I try to

What would be the best way to share objects/information between the webapp
and its host VM?

Thanks in advance,
