Hi all ranchers, i could not differtiate in which forum to post my previous question which was on classloader, thats why i posted it in two forums. And i am appending the answers which i got from both of the forums..
FROM SERVLET FORUM.... This is not a Servlet question, moving to the Java in General (advanced) forum.
FROM Java in General (advanced)
Please do not post the same question to several forums, like you have done here. It leads to duplicated effort, and doesn't really increase your audience. Let's continue the discussion in the other thread, since this is a servlet-related topic.
This not the way to answer the question if you don't know you can simply tell me any ways my problem has been solved.... Tell me what to do..IN such type of cases...
On a serious note. I guess this is a good example of what happens in case you ask a question on more than one forum. If both threads are closed. Reask the question in appropiate forum would be my suggestion.
Secondly, I guess this also would be moving to Javaranch forum soon.
In our own way, Ulf and I were both correct. The only problem I see from our side is that we are human and did not do it perfectly, but we are volunteers and we tried
Firstly I strongly believe that posts should be placed in the correct forum. While your question could have been answered in the Serflets forum, it's only relation to Servlets was that you were referring to the container's ClassLoader, but this wasn't a key part of the question as any ClassLoader could do. Hence it was moved from Servlets to 'somewhere else', and I chose JiG(a).
Often we check for duplicates before moving but not always. Since I did not check in this case and there was a duplicate, I was lucky that Ulf spotted the dupe and took care of it. It would have been easier if there wasn't a duplicate posted.
Anyhoo the fail-safe mechanisms worked well and there is only one copy in the correct forum.
Tell me what to do..IN such type of cases... Make your best guess about which fourm it should live in and please only post a single copy. If it doesn't quite fit the moderator will move it for you.
