Can somebody (Jeff?) please clarify why support for a directory only specification rather than specific jars? Why can't you just use /lib and avoid having to code manifest classpath at all if it is a problem to specify each jar name?
If it is directory support and other more lenient support is necessary (beyond listing all of the problems) ... can you please provide more details on what you would like to see? In addition to directory support there was another reference to permitting missing jars (presumably without error) and allowing the deployment to succeed. Are there other areas that you would like more lenient, non-spec compliant interpretation?
If we do support this it will be via a command line param, -DXorg.apache.geronimo.deployment.LenientMFCP=true which I have on my local image rather than a plan addition ... now we have to figure out what that exactly means. Thanks.
