Ah, I see -- if you mean that your webapps run in an exploded-dir format
(instead of a packed/sealed WAR file) then this may be tempting. I aim
for full WAR files for all but the development phase.  It's cleaner, it
enforces the "self-contained" idea, and (IIRC) it's the only webapp
format the spec requires containers to support.

: The other concern here is file space from duplication of resources. 

If you're writing Java webapps, tacking a few kb (or even a few hundred
kb) onto each WAR file isn't a big deal.
