    Appropriate location for *common* jar files

    Christopher Walk Newbie

      There are a variety of threads discussing the appropriate location / placement of common jar files (so, for example, they can be deployed once and made available to all web applications).

      What is the appropriate location?


      Many threads suggest placing such *common* jars in the JBOSS_HOME/lib/ext directory; however, this directory is not included with my distribution (jboss-3.0.0_tomcat-4.0.3 binary distribution).

      When I create an /ext directory and place my .jars there, classes from the .jar are still not found (ClassNotFoundException).

      Please advise.

      Regards,
