Subject Re: Tomcat 6.0 CLASSPATH query
Date Sat, 08 Dec 2012 17:58:38 GMT

I have read the Tomcat 6.0 classloader documentation(below link), from this what i understood
is that the "classes/jar/resource/properties file"
get loaded  from the following locations

1.Bootstrap classes of your JVM  ($JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/ext). 
2.System class loader classes  ( Add bootstrap.jar & tomcat-juli.jar to CLASSPATH variable)
3.Common class loader classes ( refers $CATALINA_BASE/lib  & $CATALINA_HOME/lib ) &
uses $CATALINA_BASE/conf/catalina.properties
4. /WEB-INF/classes of your web application 
5. /WEB-INF/lib/*.jar of your web application 
 
The thing which is still puzzling me is that how my "resource/properties files" get loaded
to Tomcat CLASSPATH
when i add them to "$CATALINA_BASE/bin" directory & When i move the same files to $CATALINA_BASE/conf
directory then it doesn't get added to Tomcat CLASSPATH.
 
My deployed applications need"properties/resource files ", Can someone please help me in understand
the optimal way of adding these files to 
Tomcat CLASSPATH. Does placing the files under <CATALINA_BASE>/bin is the right approach.Please
suggest
 
In my organisation i cannot add anything to "$CATALINA_HOME/lib or bin" location ,these are
read only directories

Thanks for your help
Vicky

Did you try putting it in tomcat/lib?
