I think most projects of any size, commercial or open source, have moved 
away from using raw CLASSPATH and use custom classloading.

For example, a common technique is to have a "lib" directory where all 
files get added into a single classloader - not perfect especially when 
you may need multiple versions of a library but it works for many 
applications.

There are also things like the uberjar project at Codehaus for bundling 
things together.
