Is there a convenient way in WTP to have your project add its compiled jar to the Tomcat COMMON classloader? (the classloader loading common stuff from tomcat/lib) The closest place I've found is to add the project in the Classpath tab of Tomcat's Run Configuration but this only allows me to target the BOOTSTRAP and SYSTEM classloaders (these are the parents of the COMMON classloader).

Modules that are used to override Tomcat components (Valve, Manager etc) usually need to go inside the COMMON classloader (tomcat/lib folder) so what is the best way to do this in WTP?

I'll reply with my own best-effort solution, while not ideal gets the job done:
- edit catalina.properties in the Servers/Tomcat resource folder
- add the absolute path to your project's classes folder like so:
common.loader="${catalina.base}/lib",...,"/home/user/myworkspace/myproject/target/classes"
