Subject Re: Sharing Application Code Between Contexts

ANT should easily be able to do this. Then you should be able either use 
either of
1) properties
2) target

To build one or more apps a time. If your shared code are versioned 
well, maven might be a good fit too. (Since it has more dependency 
handling methodology in place)
