Really it's a tradeoff between control and ease of use.

We use pretty much the same technique as Nathan, and it works for the time being.

But, over time, I can see the potential for our "lib" directory to fill up, and you lose control
of which versions of what libraries are included, and if there is any conflict (same classes
in 2 jars) you have to guess which one will be used ... so you may decide the approach of
specifying each jar is better, and live with the maintenance requirement that comes with it.

Oh dear, it sounds like another case of "no silver bullet" ...

We have used the following code, and it picks up all jar files in a directory:

  <fileset dir="${resources.lib.dir}">
    <include name="*.jar"/>
