    class loader to include jars in external folder

    Dave Chen Master

      Hello, we have a war application with lib folder

      WEB-INF/lib/core.jar

       

      The war application allow users to add external jars without repackaging the war file, For example

       

      <INSTALL-DIR>/external/a.jar

      <INSTALL-DIR>/external/b.jar

       

      users can add jars(a.jar,b.jar),and then restart JBOSS. If we add a.jar/b.jar to server/default/lib,  we got classNotFound error

      because external jars (a.jar, b.jar) have references to classes in the war.  If it does not need to restart JBoss, it is a plus.

       

      Can I configure JBoss ClassLoader to load the external jars as if they were under WEB-INF/lib of war file? If we need to

      implement our own class loader, could any one help me get started to achieve this goal?

       

      Thanks,

      Dave
