I have embedded web server as a service in my Java application.
(ie. a java web server is embedded in my java application, which automatically starts web server once application gets up)
The requirement is to support web interface thorugh my application. It means, I want to add web pages (html,jsp,applets) in my existing stable java application.
The existing java application has stable directory structures for jars & config files.
And these classes are required for newly developed applets & jsp pages too.

As the new requirement is to add & manage server pages & applets in same application, I want a way to enable minimum
directory structure change of my existing application & should able to add new applet classes & web pages by mantaining previous stable dir. structure.

Current dirctories are ->
1) Core jar file (required for newly developed applets) -> /usr/com/bin/project/core.jar
2) Java application config files -> /usr/com/db/project/*.xml
3) Other jar libraries -> /usr/com/libs/*.jar

I want to add & manage new web pages, applets in my existing application without any change in above dir. structure for jars, as it is already stabled since many years.

But,at the same time I need that core.jar for my web pages.
Please, help me to sort out this issue.

Even if you instantiate the web server from inside your java application, the web server must be having its own directory structure, isnt?
I assume your main problem is to make core.jar available to the web applications. You can always do this in your build process. Just copy core.jar in the location/lib dir accessible to the web application.

Not an advanced question, moving to Servlets forum.
