Subject RE: iPlanet OT: Why do I have to add jars in WEB-INF/lib to my classpath?
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2001 18:08:04 GMT

I package my war file with a build file using ant. I just copy all my
jar files in web-inf/lib, then jar the whole directory structure into a
.war, and deploy the file using iasdeploy.

Once deployed, all jar file contained in my war file end-up
beeing uncompressed in the web-inf/lib directory under apps/appname in
ias directory.  I supppose they (iPlanet) only put appName/web-inf/lib
in classpath, so you have to uncompress
your jar files. I find that annoying to do, so i use my build file to
deploy when new jar files are added to the project.

post if you find a better explanation or a fix for this behavior.

Does anyone know why I have to add all the jars in my WEB-INF/lib
to my classpath, and also WEB-INF/classes?  I thought you were supposed
get these for free?

I'm on NT4, iPlanet Application Server 6.0 SP3.

My directory structure is:

    - AppName
        - WarName
            - classes
        - JarName
