Thank you Mark for explaining this. I'll see if I can get my hands on a 7.0.30 and see how it works out. One thing though, would it be possible to allow Tomcat to _only_ scan for SCI's in WEB-INF/classes and exclude WEB-INF/lib (even for parent classes inherited in the former)? It would be great to have some control over the SCI's as some could be located in any of the dependencies I have added to the application.
