    Hi!

    Here is my directory structure:

    /public_html/WEB-INF/lib
    /public_html/WEB-INF/web.xml
    /public_html/index.jsp
    /public_html/some_directory/index.jsp

    The files in public_html root work fine.
    The files in some_directory don't (they can't access the lib jars*).
    If I add the whole WEB-INF directory there, it works but it's very far from clean.
    That would look like (thi works but I'm not happy with it):
    /public_html/WEB-INF/lib
    /public_html/index.jsp
    /public_html/some_directory/WEB-INF/lib
    /public_html/some_directory/WEB-INF/web.xml
    /public_html/some_directory/index.jsp
    /public_html/other_directory/WEB-INF/lib
    /public_html/other_directory/WEB-INF/web.xml
    /public_html/other_directory/index.jsp


    *) I can't put the jars in Tomcat's shared/lib directory because I have different applications that use different versions of the same classes. Also I'm setting some values (e.g. MySQL username, password) in some classes for each application.

    I need to make the subdirectories access the /public_html/WEB-INF/lib for each application.

    Thank you!

    Just to make it more clear, everything works fine except I have to put the WEB-INF directory in each subdirectory of my application.
