Include custom library in classpath

Hi All,

I'm currently seeking for a way to include a library folder to the classpath of jboss so I went to jboss-service.xml on my server configuration which is "all"
I'm using jboss 4.2.2.GA on this server so my custom library is located at /app/jboss/ext so i went and modify the jboss-service.xml file as follows:

<classpath codebase="/app/jboss/ext" archives="*"/>

also tried with:

<classpath codebase="file:/app/jboss/ext" archives="*"/>

But no success on this matter, seems the only way to load my jars is having them inside JBOSS_HOME/server/all/lib/ext folder. Any idea on what could be wrong or where should I look?

The issue is that the entry for the classpath must be a URL not a path. We added an /ext folder under jboss-home/lib.

<classpath codebase="${jboss.home.url}/lib/ext" archives="*"/>
I agree. Here's the link:

It's not a secret anymore!
