Hi,

See Default Synchronization for Files and Directories
.

This section contains the following description of the applibs and ext
subdirectories of domain-dir/lib

The lib directory also contains the following subdirectories:

applibs

This directory contains application-specific Java class files or
JAR archives and ZIP archives for use by applications that are
deployed to the entire domain.

ext

This directory contains optional packages in JAR archives and
ZIP archives for use by applications that are deployed to the
entire domain. These archive files are loaded by using Java
extension mechanism. For more information, see Optional Packages
- An Overview
.

Note - Optional packages were formerly known as standard
extensions or extensions.

The lib directory and its subdirectories typically contain only a
small number of files. Therefore, by default, a change to any file
in these directories causes the DAS to resynchronize the file that
changed.

Hope this helps,
-Paul Davies

Yes, it was very helpful.

I did not expect such info under "synchronization".
