"Is it guaranteeing that all the Jar files inside WEB-INF/lib is loaded into application class loader?"
Note that this depends on which classes (jars) you have in the WEB-INF/lib directory. WebLogic uses the delegation
model to load classes; when classes are already loaded, they do not get loaded again by the application class loader.
WebLogic provides an override mechanism by the so-called filtering class loader configuration. Some examples are given here:
