This is strange, as I did a quick check, and I see both things:
* the code that takes RPF out from servlet context - ServletContainerDispatcher
* the code that puts it into servlet context - ResteasyBootstrap
should be loaded by war's classloader, hence your local RE should be used.
But this was a quick check ...

Last week I was testing deploying a war file with RESTEasy on 1.2.1.GA in the war
archive's WEB-INF/lib directory and I was getting a CCE like the one below.

AS ships with a different version of RESTEasy library which would explain this issue
(latest AS ships 2.0-beta-2). However, AFAIR in the past WEB-INF/lib was deployed under a
different classloader and hence this shouldn't be a problem, should it?
FilterDispatcher is a class that's only in REST 2.0, so somehow tomcat's
ApplicationFilterConfig loads a 2.0 filter class (this is probably configured in some
web.xml somewhere) but when this 2.0 class tries to load ResteasyProviderFactory, this is
loaded from the war's lib directory (1.x).
providerFactory = (ResteasyProviderFactory)
So, the underlying issue might be related to a change in initialisation or deployment
from RESTEasy 1.x to 2.x.
