        Runtime validation of a Web Application. This method uses JNDI to look up the resources located under a DirContext. It locates Web Application MANIFEST.MF file in the /META-INF/ directory of the application and all MANIFEST.MF files in each JAR file located in the WEB-INF/lib directory and creates an ArrayList of ManifestResource objects. These objects are then passed to the validateManifestResources method for validation.

        context - The context from which the Logger and path to the application
        true if all required extensions satisfied
