You're still using the classpath for jars? I only do that when I want 
to change the classpath on a per-run basis, in which case I am 
changing it and using the version number is not a problem. However, 
for standard libraries like xerces.jar that are shared among multiple 
applications I just dump them in my ext directory and forget about 
them. It's much easier than changing the classpath.  My normal 
classpath doesn't contain any jar archives, just directories of my 
own compiled code that hasn't been bundled into a jar.
