Thanks for that link, I did read it over, very good info!

I absolutely agree with the above and have the same philosophy... Any 
webapp I create is completely self-contained, and that includes the 
source directory, which I usually put in the root of the app but remove 
it when deploying to prod, and in it is any JAR that is required for 
compiling but not for execution, like j2ee.jar for servlet classes for 
instance.  I find this structure removes all external dependencies and 
makes the webapp completely self-reliant.
