Subject RE: version numbers in jars

A big +1 to adding version numbers to jar names

In Windows, I never preset my classpath: I have a simple batch file for each
project/codebase which uses the jars in the lib in my development tree to
set the correct and minimum classpath for my current work.
Otherwise, you'd have to update all code simultaneously when you need to
change one.
Never looked back, had a continual nightmare with fixed classpaths.

Alas, this doesn't work in Windows environments....
