The support of a lib folder inside of a jar is not necessarily guaranteed
to be supported on all versions of Hadoop.[1]

We typically go with the "uber" jar where we use maven-shade-plugin to
actually explode the crunch dependencies and others into the assembly jar.
Another approach since you are using Oozie is to include the jar in the
workflow lib directory.  That should put the jar on the classpath.  The
last approach is obviously to manually use DistributedCache yourself which
will distribute it out to the cluster.
