Hi,
How can I know what all jar files (reside at $CATALINA_HOME/lib/) apache tomcat has loaded?

Thanks

I suspect you have gotten the wrong idea about jar files. Java never "loads" a whole jar file, but selects class definitions as needed.

A typical Tomcat installation should have the class-loader-howto.html file in webapps/docs - this explains where Tomcat is allowed to look for library Jars.

Tomcat does NOT use your environment CLASSPATH.
