    Share classes between multiple web applications

    Deep Chand Newbie

      I'm using JBoss 4.0.3. I've two web applications deployed where I want to access some of the methods exposed by one web app from another web app. I get NoClassDefFoundError when I try to access a class in \WEB-INF\classes directory of another web application. Is this thing possible at all?

      I know one thing I can do is to put all the class files in \server\deploy\lib directory and then they would probably be accessible to all the web apps. However, I don't want to do that. I tried setting "UseJBossWebLoader" attribute in the jbossweb-tomcat41.sar/META-INF/jboss-service.xml to "true" which I thought would work but in vain.

      I know that design wise this is not a recommended approach and all web apps should be a self-contained deployment. However is this thing possible and how? Please help.

      Thanks
