So you place all your jars in axis2/WEB-INF/lib?  Is it ok to redistribute an updated axis2.war
with my jars included?

I actually create .aar files with no .class in them, just the declaration, and make sure the
real classes are in the same webapp.

remember, each webapp has its own classpath in WEB-INF/lib; anything 
goes in there is private and webapp-wide.
