Subject mail.jar, activation.jar and classloading
Date Wed, 26 Jan 2011 10:52:04 GMT
What is special about mail.jar (and activation.jar) that requires
putting them into the common.loader?

Quote from the Tomcat docs:

  Unpackage the distribution(s) and place mail.jar (and activation.jar
  if required) into $CATALINA_HOME/lib so the JAR(s) is(are) available
  to Tomcat during the initialization of the mail Session Resource.

This question is spawned by a recent thread on the Ant mailing list,
where the same question was raised in the context of classloading
issues, but not answered.

Mail task with mail.jar & activation.jar out of lib folder
