Tomcat not able to start after adding aspose jar in catalina.properties

Hello, I am trying to evaluate aspose jar file. I am using the following configurations

  1. aspose.pdf-21.6.jar
  2. Debian GNU/Linux 10, Release 10
  3. jdk-10.0.1
  4. apache-tomcat-9.0.5

I have added aspose jar file in the catalina.properties file. However, after the addition of jar file tomcat is not able to start


Can you please elaborate a bit more about the issue that you are facing? Please share some screenshots and steps to reproduce the same issue at our end so that we can investigate it and address it accordingly.

  1. Go to Catalina.properties
  2. Add the jar file in the property commons.loader
  3. Try to start tomcat

It will not start. It seems there is something missing in the jar file while tomcat scans the jar file on boot. It may be related to some information in META-INF within in the jar file

I tried to add the jar file in the property of jarsToSkip. This time tomcat was able to start
