Subject Re: [Q] when to share jars
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2005 12:28:57 GMT
Amen brother!

Sharing jars between web apps is just a Bad Idea (tm). 

Disk is cheap, and so is the time required to copy a jar. 

...unless you are an ISP with 1000+ web apps running on a sinlge box,
then it *might* be OK, but even then, I would stop and think very
carefully before doing it.
