Subject Re: [Q] when to share jars

Bottom line is that the only libraries you should put in shared/lib
are ones that you know are stable and won't be changing much, if at
all (can anybody really know this?).  Every application that depends
on a shared library gets impacted when you upgrade the shared library.
 If there are several development teams responsible for applications
on the server you now have to coordinate with each team to regression
test every impacted application.

It's just not worth the time and effort.  Like another poster
commented, disk is cheap so who cares if your WAR gets bigger.
