By default, Tomcat prevents webapps from loading several .jars which are part of the Tomcat distribution (eg the servlet and JSP APIs) - is it possible to configure others to also be excluded?
If it can't be done with configuration alone, does Tomcat provide any extension points for resource validation?
I want to use shared logging libraries, and need to make sure that an errant app doesn't clobber the configuration.
This is what I'm referring to (from Tomcat startup log):
