I think that's the behavior you should expect.
- combine the JARs into an aggregated JAR that contains the classes of the common classes + the third party JARs
- move the third party JARs out of your common class JAR and into your .esb archive or your server/default/lib directory
I'm sure there are more options to, but I wouldn't expect what you are suggesting to work.
Tom, thanks for the response.
I had already moved the third party JARs into my ESB and got it to work that way. I was hoping to get the nested format to work though ...
