I am migrating a few web applications that used to run within Tomcat and which all share common properties files. These properties files used to be stored in $TOMCAT_HOME/shared/classes and were visible to all the web applications. This way you could make a change to one and they'd all see the change.
I'm wondering how you accomplish the same thing with JBoss. I looked at http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=ClassLoadingConfiguration and was hoping to find some info there, but that doesn't seem to give me the information I'm looking for. I tried putting the properties files in $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/lib and $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/conf/props but the web application was not able to find the properties file in either location. I tried creating a $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/classes hoping that would work, but that didn't either.
So how do you do share properties files with web applications in JBoss?
