Hello Tomcat Devs, Is it expected that when Bootstrap.init() invokes "org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina"'s constructor (which it finds in catalina.jar) via reflection through catalinaLoader that some of the classes in the package org.apache.catalina.startup, originating in bootstrap.jar, are still used by classes loaded by the new classloader?
The result is that there are now two jars in runtime loaded by two separate containers sharing classes from the same package. I just want to make sure this is by choice and not accidental because this is going to cause problems for both JPMS and OSGi and I need to figure out how to deal with it. The first thing that might need to happen is that bootstrap may need to export some of it's packages which will certainly result in a split package scenario (since other modules already provide those same packages). As you can guess in both module systems split packages are a challenge.
