Subject Re: Dependencies on extensions functionality
Date Sun, 05 Feb 2012 22:26:14 GMT
Hi,

Here is the bug that I created:
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=52607

I didn't find "catalina.ext.dirs" property in the documentation.
I just attached the debugger and checked the sources while executing the
scenario ;-)

Thanks and Regards
Violeta
