I'm working on an application and need to to update a previously created enhancement to an application that was installed as a separate jar file in the lib folder.

However, I can't remember how you determine in which order the jar files are looked thru for the most recent fix and as there is another jar file I want to make sure it's in the right order.

Also, what tends to be the naming standards for these jar files? Here they've chosen the project id which doesn't necessarily follow a sequential id.

This page from the JRE documentation explains how the extension mechanism works: The Extension Mechanism
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
