Starting with Servlet Spec 2.3 (I think) there has been an emphasis on
putting everything a web app needs to run into its war file.
To put include something that runs contrary to this 'best practice' in
an article of tips at this point in time doesn't sound like a good idea.

I would seriously consider replacing that one with something else.
