jar file address

  Asked By: Ketan    Date: Dec 14    Category: Java    Views: 2284

i want to use exist DB in my servlet. i must set 10 jar files address to classpath. i should place these jar files in lib directory in ROOT\WEB_INF? if i place this jar files in another address and give these adddress to classpath, it's wrong?(because the classpath string length is restricted and i can't place these jar files in ROOT\WEB_INF\lib) i also have a conf.xml file (configurtion file of exist DB) i should place this in server?(jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9\bin)

You should put your application jar  files in the following path: WebAppContextRoot/WEB-INF/lib (In tomcat, WebAppContextRoot is your web application folder under webapp folder).

You should put any config file  in classpath, if & only if, that config file is read via ClassLoader and not via file system.
