At the moment it is not possible to load taglibs from outside the webapp root, this could be a problem for example in:
- development: from inside Eclipse the taglibs are not seen and one is forced to copy them inside WEB-INF/lib
- production: if endorsed libraries are in use then they are not seen
The goal is to load taglibs from the classpath, replacing the current method, which loads taglibs only from the webapp root.
This patch has been adapted from Manuel Molaschi's (https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2954132&group_id=794&atid=100794) to fit the current class.
Testing has been done on Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows 7, using Tomcat 6 as application server.
