In Servlet spec 3.0 Rev. a at the end of chapter 8.3 the following is written (page #87 (109/230)): [quote] In addition, a Servlet 3.0 compliant Servlet container must provide a ServletContext attribute with name javax.servlet.context.orderedLibs, whose value (of type java.util.List<java.lang.String>) contains the list of names of JAR files in the WEB-INF/lib directory of the application represented by the ServletContext, ordered by their web fragment names (with possible exclusions if fragment JAR files have been excluded from absolute-ordering), or null if the application does not specify any absolute or relative ordering. [/quote] In the source code there is a constant ServletContext.ORDERED_LIBS, but I see no code where it were used. My understanding is that the list should contain just the jar names, e.g. ["foo.jar", "bar.jar"] and be absent if there is no ordering.

This has been fixed in trunk and 7.0.x and will be included in 7.0.35 onwards.
