Subject RE: CATALINA_BASE/lib on tomcat6 (RHEL6)
Date Wed, 15 Jul 2015 20:07:14 GMT
Hi,

Thanks for the tip!  It turns out that the 'stock' catalina.properties (in /etc/tomcat6/catalina.properties)
was not getting invoked for the CATALINA_BASE instance.  I copied /etc/tomcat6/catalina.properties
to $CATALINA_BASE/conf/catalina.properties, and now common.loader is including $CATALINA_BASE/lib:

common.loader: ${catalina.base}/lib,${catalina.base}/lib/*.jar,${catalina.home}/lib,${catalina.home}/lib/*.jar

This differs from Tomcat7 which I have also been testing.

Thanks,

Josh
