Does Tomcat 3 get confused when there are two classes of diff version, but of same name in the class path?
Posted on 2003-12-11
We are using tomcat 3 on our server, where multiple applicatons are running. Each application has its own folder under Tomcat, each folder has its own WEB-INF directory where we put our class file. Somehow, there are two application using the same classes, but different version, which means the class names are the same, but the codes are different.
Strangely, the one application which was installed on the machine earlier than the other seems "over power" the other that the newly installed application only sees the class version on the other directory, but not the one on its own WEB-INF directory. How to fix this and why?
