Subject Re: Can't find classes in jar files in WEB-INF
Date Mon, 19 Feb 2007 02:46:28 GMT
Thanks for the tip!

I don't think I'd have a conflict with all the classes in my application.  
Although some of my classes have common names, like user.java (compiled,
of course, to user.class), they are all member of just one of three packages:
infoisland, dbMgr, and utils, so I don't think the names are colliding.  
Loading the app bombs out as tomcat is loading when it can't find my filter,
CheckUser (makes sure users are logged in), which is in the infoIsland 
package.

However, your comment is telling: "WEB-INF itself is not checked or scanned
for .jar files at all."  So, if I make sure the WEB-INF/classes subdirectory 
is empty, how do I tell tomcat to go get classes out of the 
WEB-INF/lib/whatever.jar file?

Thanks.
