Subject Shared Libs
Date Wed, 05 Apr 2006 18:45:14 GMT
One new feature I'm working on for 1.1 is support for tomcat style  
shared libs.  This creates a shared class loader visible to all j2ee  
applications which contains shared/lib/*.jar and shared/classes/ to  
the class loader.

Will this address your issues?
