Hi, I have packaged my struts program into a .war file format and have deployed teh same in weblogic 7.0. But when i try to access any of the classes in the directory /WEB-INF/classes, i get this exception : ClassNotFoundException. But when i package the classes directory in a separate jar file and add it to weblogic classpath, it works fine. I am not able to understand, why my application is not able to read the class files from the directory /WEB-INF/classes in my web archive ( .war file ) ? Thanks in advance. bksella.
