I am in a delima.

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.

PS This is not a web/J2EE application.

Please shoot and give your opinions for both.

Thanks
