Subject Re: best practice: How to insert unreferenced class files into a JAR
Date Thu, 22 May 2008 13:18:54 GMT
Since these dynamically loaded classes are part of a separate project, 
you are already on the correct path. Just jar those files separately and 
use that jar in the classpath of your project. If you want to go even 
further, use ivy to manage your dependencies.
