Hi [~lektran],

I will close this issue since there is no problem in running standard web application. Thanks.

>             Project: OFBiz
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: framework
>    Affects Versions: Upcoming Release
>            Reporter: James Yong

>         Attachments: OFBIZ-9347.patch
> Not all libraries can be embedded and used via Java API.
> Some, like CAS SSO, need to be loaded as a standard web application and access via REST API.
> So we need to allow OFBiz to load standard web application where there is no controller.xml and the jar files residing in WEB-INF/lib folder.  
> Proposing to add an attribute named 'type' to the 'webapp' tag at ofbiz-component.xml, i.e.
> {code}
> <webapp name="myapp"
>         type="standard"  <--------------- new proposed attribute
>         title="Myapp"
>         server="myapp-server"
>         location="webapp/myapp"
>         mount-point="/myapp"/>
> {code}
> This new attribute will help to differentiate standard web applications from those in OFBiz, and allows Catalina Container to load them accordingly.
> When type="standard", will load as standard web application.
> When type is empty, load according to OFBiz way.
> There are some discussions on this at https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/4d1b501c2ce6297ab0b41712b61c0fcb8881510512deaf380b49ab9d@%3Cdev.ofbiz.apache.org%3E
