Hi All, Can the contents of the WAR file WEB-INF/classes directory contain jars? It seems that if I try to override a class in the lib folder by placing a jar in this this folder it does not quite work. In 4.0.3 ibm added a new version of ActionServlet in the WEB-INF/classes folder however they did not modify the manifest file in WEB-INF/lib/seadmin_code.jar to include this new path. How do I do this? adding a .class class path in the manifest file? I am getting VerifyErrors as a result, I think? -thembile
Hi, In my experience any JAR file even if it is part of your application should go in the lib folder. The classes folder is just for unjarred classes. Theoretically, you could unjar all the jars in the lib in to the classes folder and the application would work fine. It would be a fairly pointless exercise though. Cheers, Steve

thanks for the responses, I upgraded to WAS 5.0 pre-release and I no longer had to deal with this problem. -thembile.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
