Shared files in .ear

1) If multiple .ear archives use common files, is it best to have a copy of each shared file in every .ear, or is it a better practice to use only one copy for all .ears and save these files on a common directory.
2) If the latter is the best choice, is there a common directory defined by the specs or is this directory vendor specific?
3) If we use a shared directory for common files, how can we make a note in a particular .ear so that those files are not forgotten during deployment.
Any thought?
Thanks,
Francois
