Subject Re: Sharing inter-project dependencies
Date Tue, 29 Aug 2006 06:03:20 GMT
Hello Michael,

we are solving this, by having a central repository (pretty much like the maven repository)
which contains all JAR-files of all components. Therefor you can then reference a fileset
with all neede files from the repository. 
The hard thing is, that the components can change their version and then component A is dependend
from component B Version x.y. Somebody has to reference these correctly.

I hope this helps a little.
