yes, this is exactly what happens. classloaders can look "up" the chain of classloaders, but not down. spring classes in a global scope cannot see per-application classes. Unless you plan on deploying a large number of webapps, it's probably simpler (and less error prone) to drop the whole issue and put all application classes into WEB-INF/lib. If you think you've got a good reason to not do this, I believe (as suggested in another email) that resin supports some sort of quasi-shared thing.
