This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I have a library that comprises of all of my classes, about 5000 of them. It is easier for deployment issues, to use all of this huge jar file to distribute and version to my customers. But, wouldn't it be easier to split up those classes into separate identities, instead of all my classes being placed together?
So my question is: - What is the benefits of having multiple library jar files versus using a clearly defined package structure in one huge jar file.
