Cannot use custom JSP tags and/or custom HttpContexts (with context roots) simultaneously

Description

Related to https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/ops4j/A5kT5EX00K4

Trying to get custom .tag files working, but the Whiteboard Extender does not seem to like it (this is outside of a WAB/WAR)

I am attaching a single class, Activator.java, which creates all the services, and also has a few flags to reproduce the bug. There are also 2 supporting classes, index.jsp and /WEB-INF/tags/layout.tag to test the custom tag functionality.

If I create a DefaultHttpContext and try to wrap it so that I can handle handleSecurity, then the JSP compiler cannot find the custom tag. If I use my own custom HttpContext/ServletContextHandler, it also fails. Seems like a resource lookup bug.

None of the Whiteboard properties seem to work as intended in this scenario, which seems common: Servlet->forward to JSP->access custom .tag (not .tld)

The code attached is currently working, but seems like a workaround - the end goal would be to use OSGI-spec annotations to accomplish the same. Either I am missing something, or there is a bug
