    jboss 4.0/tomcat absolute pathname classloader issue

    Mike Mosiewicz Newbie

      After deploying a war in Jboss I've noticed problems with readin Velocity templates. Basically it appears that:


      .getClass().getClassLoader().getResource("/template/xhtml/text.vm")


      doesn't return anything but null, however:

      .getClass().getClassLoader().getResource("template/xhtml/text.vm")


      works fine, as good as

      .getClass().getResource("/template/xhtml/text.vm)


      I've tried java 2 classloading compliance on and off, I also tried different combinations ejblenient and using/not using jboss classloader in tomcat.

      The resource being looked for is located in webapp.war/WEB-INF/lib/webwork.2.1.jar.

      Environment: jboss 4.0.0 jdk 1.5.0-b64

      Is this documented behaviour or known issue?
