JBoss 2.4.3/Tomcat 3.2.3 Bundle
Try dropping the leading ./ from the jar name in your WAR's MANIFEST.MF - i.e.:
Created-By: Ant 1.4.1
the ./ should be fine. Make sure though that you have a carriage return after your
(ie hit enter a few times).
manifest is created by ant. so I think it's not a problem. Probably all *.property files JBoss class loader ignores. I do want to know what it doesn't ignore except classes.
