Add support for authenticator plug-in in external JAR files
Currently, classes/JAR files for external authentication that are installed by users need to be located in the default class path (eg. WEB-INF/classes or WEB-INF/lib). This may be problematic if the external authentication uses 3rd-party JARs that are incompatible with those shipped together with BASE.
It shouldn't be too difficult to modify the
Application.getAuthenticator() method so that it can use a different class loader defined in the base.config file.
