trying to use the Class-Path field of a servlet's manifest file. if i use a relative path to any jar file on the same drive, even outside of jboss's root directory, it works just fine (i can see that the referenced jar files are deployed). if i use an absolute path (via the file:// syntax) i get a warning on startup that the referenced jar cannot be found. i can see from the logs that jboss is looking for the file $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/deploy/file://c:\<path to file>.
anyone know if this usage of the Manifest file works under jboss? i've tried the same configuration with standalone jars and it works fine. i have remembered to use a newline at the end of the file.
using jboss 3.0.4 with tomcat 4.1.12, jdk 1.3.1.x, w2k.
