Subject RE: Semi-OT: Organizing WEB-INF/lib dir...
Date Fri, 04 Jun 2004 04:35:42 GMT
Well I have done that. I have created a directory under lib and included 
struts.jar in it. This is running fine in JDeveloper when I added the path 
to the classpath.

RE: Semi-OT: Organizing WEB-INF/lib dir...

I'm pretty sure the answer is no.  I just took all the JARs for a test app 
had installed and moved them from WEB-INF/lib to WEB-INF/lib/stuff, and 
app no longer works.  This is in Tomcat, so possibly it would work with 
another app server, but I tend to doubt it.

One suggestion that I can make, a habit I've gotten into, is name your 
liberally, since their names don't matter.  I usually name the JARs as 
descriptively as possible (for example, 
might be one) and include their version, so it's fairly easy to tradk down 

what's what and at a glance tell what versions I'm running.  Probably not 
the ideal answer, but maybe it'll clean up the mess just a little.
