Whew. Getting jetty and java all classpath straight and working together
has been a pain. Everything I've read and googled says I done the proper
steps, so it's something I'm not getting right on my end, and to ask the
list to figure it out would be too huge a chore to ask of anyone. I'll
figure it out. The usual fix is just to start over, with the docs at
hand. <grins> Persistence counts in Linux! Do you recommend I uninstall
all rpm's for java/jetty at the same time?? I know some things are going
to squeak about it.
