I have several webapps that use a bunch of runtime external jars and I would rather not copy them all into the WEB-INF/lib directory. Prior to using eclipse to debug jsp applications, I would modify the shared.loader= property in catalina.properties. But now with eclipse, tomcat's copy of catalina.properties gets overwritten, wiping out any changes that I've made. How do I get eclipse to use a customized shared.loader property? Should I try to modify the catalina.properties in workspace/Servers ?


Using eclipse 3.6.1, tomcat 7.0.11 and WDT 3.2.2.

The "master" copies of the configuration files are the ones under the
Servers project in your workspace. See the Tomcat FAQ[1] for more info.
