JDK1.8 ClassLoader Doesn't Load META-INF/services/* From Libraries In WEB-INF/lib With prefer-web-inf-classes=true
Last updated on FEBRUARY 15, 2018
Applies to:Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 184.108.40.206.0 to 220.127.116.11.0 [Release 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
On JDK1.8 ChangeAwareClassLoader (Web Application ClassLoader) does not load META-INF/services/* from libraries in WEB-INF/lib when prefer-web-inf-classes is set to true.
For example, JAXP library (i.e. xalan-2.6.0.jar) is not loaded from WEB-INF/lib and is loaded from System Classpath.
On JDK1.7 this worked well (it was loaded from library under WEB-INF/lib).
