Subject Global JNDI resource loaded from a webapp
Date Tue, 26 Jan 2010 10:02:11 GMT
Hi All,

Is it possible to configure a global JNDI resource which is loaded from a webapp?
I want to keep all related libraries for the resource in a web application, not in shared
library path, but I want the resource to be shared by other web applications.
The primary reason is because there are two many related jar files for the resource object
and those can conflict other web applications if they are deployed onto shared library path.
Also, I could make use of reloading feature by deploying onto a web app.

Here's an example scenario:
  - In shared lib folder, minimized api jars files only are deployed. The api jars contains
shareable interfaces or factory classes.
  - /repository webapp contains all related jar files, initializes a repository instance and
register it into global JNDI resource by some way.
  - /cms webapp accesses the repository by JNDI to author and manage contents.
  - /site webapp accesses the repository by JNDI to provide preview websites.
  - ...

Could you please recommend me a possible solution/alternative on Tomcat?

Thanks in advance,
