Yes... wouldn't it have some problems though if jar files inside the
webapp specified extensions to be loaded from relative paths?
The relative path they would find would be /usr/share/java/webapps
which would presumably not be the place one would find normal jar
(I don't know if this is the case ot not - I haven't tested it).
