IMO it's bad practice to have hardcoded the libraries in the classpath as it is done in this
case, apacheds.bat as well
as If we just add all libraries located in the lib folder to the classpath (loop
and collect them in the
start script) would not only make it easier to avoid such kind of problems but also gives
the user the (easy) ability to
add custom jars to the application - just put the custom jar into the lib folder and restart
the application.

My 2 cents
