Webapps do have some default permissions (files and JNDI) so it is possible
that these are all the app requires to run.

The policy file as is should mean the code has access to the class. Not
sure why it fails.

Can you run the faulty instance with:,failure
and report the failure message.

If you can reproduce this at will then
would be better but it will generate lots of log data

I have also seen problems with policy files where I have had to use
${file.separator} rather than / but that was with on
Windows rather than in the codebase.
