Subject Re: Servlet to share Pivot (and maybe other) jars
Date Mon, 25 Jan 2010 23:39:50 GMT
I'd suggest putting them in /lib rather than /WEB-INF/lib. That way, you can still share them
across all the Pivot apps deployed in the web app but you don't need to write a custom servlet
to serve them up.
