Description Mathieu LARCHET 2008-12-05 01:02:35 UTC
The catalina.sh script calls the setclasspath.sh script to define some environment variables.

Among these variables is the JAVA_ENDORSED_DIRS (line 99):


There are 2 problems :

- JAVA_ENDORSED_DIRS couldn't be overriden (using -D in the command line)
- In a multi-instance configuration, the default endorsed dir is CATALINA_HOME/endorsed instead of CATALINA_BASE/endorsed

Here is a proposition to modify setclasspath.sh :

# Set the default -Djava.endorsed.dirs argument
if [ "$JAVA_ENDORSED_DIRS" == "" ]
