Re: [jetty-users] IllegalArgumentException when loading a WebApp

Can we see the rest of your stacktrace for that exception?

I run into a problem when trying to load webapps. I've got a
GWT-application as web-app containing jars in the WEB-INF-directory.
The configuration for the webappcontext-class is more or less the
original one I had with Jetty 7.2:

    <Call name="addBean">
        <New id="DeploymentManager" class="org.eclipse.jetty.deploy.DeploymentManager">
          <Set name="contexts">
            <Ref id="Contexts" />
          <Call name="setContextAttribute">

  <Ref id="Contexts">
    <Call name="addHandler"><Arg>
      <New class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext">
        <Set name="contextPath">/CACertAdmin</Set>
        <Set name="war">./etc/admin/CACertAdmin.war</Set>
        <Set name="extractWAR">False</Set>

When tarting, the serverlog contains the following error:

2013-10-14 13:34:18 WARNING: EXCEPTION
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: !file: jar:file:/C:/HUB/etc/admin/CACertAdmin.war!/WEB-INF/lib/CACertAdmin.jar
        at org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppClassLoader.addClassPath(

I receive the same errors for all other WAR-files I try to add.
Looking into the source of WebAppClassLoader it seems to me that
it can't handle the syntax for jar-in-jar. But this worked before
so I'm sure that there must be some kind of configuration-error
on my side since I can't be the only one who uses this.
