How to upgrade jaxrpc.jar in Netweaver


System Information: We are using Netweaver 2004s with SP6 patch.

Problem Statement: How to upgrade jaxrpc.jar in Netweaver

Problem Description:

Our application is using jaxrpc.jar. We want to upgrade to a more recent version. For this, we upgraded the version of jaxrpc.jar in our application. However, when we deploy the application, it still uses the older version of jaxrpc.jar which are present in NetWeaver system directories (<drivename>:\usr\sap\<Sys ID>\J2E\JC01\j2ee\cluster\server0\bin\ext\webservices_lib folder).

This is happening perhaps because the application server is configured for Parent First class loading strategy by default. Is there any way to instruct the application server to look for jars files and libraries in the application classpath first, before looking for it in the application server or system classpath?

We referred to SAP note 990854 but couldnt gather much from it.

This is blocking our development efforts. So an early response will be greatly appreciated.

Let me know if you need more information on this.
