Is the template a JSP?  If so, you're stuck.  In the current container 
spec, they must be included in the WAR, not in a JAR.

This is a critical flaw of JSPs and one of the many reasons some 
developers prefer velocity or freemarker pages.

To partially overcome the problem, use your build process to copy the 
JSP's from the source/jar to the location for packaging into war.  That 
way you'll at least have to manage only one copy.
