> When used in an EAR archive the Digester default classloading/resource loading
> implementation makes many major frameworks unusable.  For Example, if I use
> Struts/Tiles (uses digester) in Web App war files and use Digester from any EJB
> component library or in the EAR classloader space either the Tiles definitions
> cannot be loaded or other classes cannot be found.  This is because Digester by
> default sets useContextClassloader = false.  Since most users and frameworks
> (Struts, Tiles, JSF, etc) do not set useContextClassloader = true, Digester
> essentially breaks enterprise Applications where the Digester is used from more
> than one module.  Note that end users do not control the uses of Digester, the
> default useContextClassloader policy should = true.  
> Patch by changing:
> useContextClassloader = false
> to:
> useContextClassloader = true
> //
> This solves the problem - which Google turns up endless hits.
