you can put your jar files everywhere in the class path. If you are developing web apps there are two possibilities. WEB-INF/lib of your application or /lib of your server.
Preferred way is to put it in the application lib dir, cause then if you redeploy on a different server you have everything you need.
For normal java applications the jars can be everywhere but you have to include them in your startup file or your command java -classpath $PATH/your.jar
Hope that helps
I agree. Here's the link:
