Subject: Re: CLASSPATH, env, lib, jars and all that
From: Vic Cekvenich <>
One thing I do is:
1. Share WebApps folder and map it as say S: drive.

2. Then I put all my JARs in WEB-INF\lib, and put all of them in classpath.

Then, were ever I go, I just map the "S:" drive and ready to go. I can 
ever get to debug other people "S" drives.

Even just now when installing Wintec Inc. Struts Validator, it comes with all its own copies.
