Subject Velocity Jar File Size...will it get smaller?
Date Sun, 11 Feb 2001 11:32:00 GMT
Do you have any idea of the size of a bare-bones jar file for Velocity? 
Currently I see 350Kb but I am hoping this could be much smaller – has 
anyone with experience in jar sizes and compression et al. Have any 
opinions on whether the jar file can shrink?

I am talking just the Velocity specific code (not support jats etc.).
