Uploading static jar's once
I have a large web/web service app that includes over 40MB of unchanging
jar files used as libraries (not application specific). When I used tomcat
I could put those libraries in a shared location and any number of
instances of my application could use them. This saves on disk space,
memory space, and upload times.
I already have the ability to separate my application war file from a war
file that just contains these unchanging jar files. How can I upload and
install those non-changing, common jar files once, thus allowing me to
update my application specific code without having to include the library
jars in my application war?
