            2.4.4 or 3.0 ?

            Jetty or Tomcat ?

            If Tomcat - try Jetty.

            If Jetty AND 3.0 - I will fix it.

                Yeah, I reported this problem on this forum a few
                weeks ago but got no response. The problem seems
                to be with the JBoss 3.0/Tomcat distribution.

                JSPs can't see classes that live in JARs packaged
                at the EAR level.

                Works with Websphere, JBoss 2.0 and every other
                app server we've tried.

                I'm eagerly awaiting a fix so we can start using JBoss 3.0.

                  I'm also using JBoss 3 with libs at EAR level and I had this problem with the JSP classpath :

                  You have to add a MANIFEST.MF in the META-INF of your webapp like this :

                  Class-Path: ./lib/your.jar

                  Hope this helps

                    We DO have a reference to the library JAR in the
                    META-INF/MANIFEST.MF of the webapp's WAR file.

                    In our case the library JAR lives at the root of the EAR,
                    not in ./lib, so we have declared in the MANIFEST.MF:

                    Class-Path: x.jar

                    It does not work with JBoss3.0/Tomcat.

                    It works with JBoss2.0/Tomcat and Websphere.

                      I'm having all the of the same problems mentioned above, with either Jboss 3.0.0 Tomcat OR Jetty. In either case, if the JSP in the WAR tries to reference any classes I expect to be loaded via the manifest class-path, the compile fails. Is there ANY solution to this on the horizon?

                      I don't have the option to include every since extension JAR in my WEB-INF/lib directory.

                        If you are using the MANIFEST.MF classpath tag, I've heard that if there is no new line at the end, it will not be picked up...

                        Does that help ?

                          Hi, there.
                          I saw you post a question about "JSP CLASSPATH", I met a problem here about JSP too. I have a .ear file which consists of one .war file and .jar file. I can deploy successfully my ear file, but when I access my JSP file, it can not find any classes which I did saw in .war file.

                          Do you know what's wrong? or this is the problem you mentioned.

                          Please help me.
