Adding to a web apps class path

    Hi

    We're trying to set up a webapp so that new components may be
    dynamically added. Ideally, we would have a /extensions subdirectory
    and then each component would have a directory under that with its own
    jsps, its own /lib for .jars that only it needs and so forth.

    The problem is that the ClassLoader for the web app only search WEB-
    INF/lib and WEB-INF/classes. Tomcat lets you override that class
    loader. Websphere allows you to specify additional directories to be
    searched. But is there any way to extend the class path that isn't
    app server specific, so that any J2EE app server could know where to
    look?

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Larry
