Server won't start and JAR files

user8742475 Newbie

My application uses external classes (quartz, jersey, jackson) and I included all the jar files containing the external classes in the WEB-INF\lib directory of the EAR file already. I deployed it to WLS 10.3.5 on windows but when I tried to start it up, it failed to start up.

I copied all those jar files and put them in the <domain>\lib directory and add in the classpath section on the ServerStart tab of the server then it started up.

I thought if you include those jar files in the WEB-INF\lib of the EAR file then you don't need to put them in the <domain>\lib and specify in the classpath section?

Do you have any ideas?
