2.3 Migrating to Tomcat 6

Folder structure in Tomcat 6 has changed from Tomcat 5.5.x versions. One clear difference is that shared folder is completely missing and therefore it needs to be configured manually. Steps to recreate shared classes and lib structure is following:

  1. Create folders 'shared/lib' and 'shared/classes' under TOMCAT_HOME

  2. Go to 'TOMCAT_HOME/conf' directory and modify 'catalina.properties' file

  3. From catalina.properties file locate 'shared.loader=' property

  4. Modify property so that it corresponds 'shared.loader=${catalina.base}/shared/classes,${catalina.base}/shared/lib/*.jar'.
