class loading

January 21, 2008

For tomcat 5.X (used internally by jboss v 4.2 or less) :

From the perspective of a web application, class or resource loading looks in the following repositories, in this order:

Bootstrap classes of your JVM
System class loader classses (described above)
/WEB-INF/classes of your web application
/WEB-INF/lib/*.jar of your web application
$CATALINA_HOME/common/classes
$CATALINA_HOME/common/endorsed/*.jar
$CATALINA_HOME/common/lib/*.jar
$CATALINA_HOME/shared/classes
$CATALINA_HOME/shared/lib/*.jar
