Hi all,

I've got (hopefully!) a quick question around WAS 7 and shared libraries. I've not made use of shared libs before, so forgive me if my questions seem a little stupid!

I've got everything working from my development workspace and using an application with shared libraries pointing to JAR files. This is great, but it means I have to keep JAR-ing up my workspace to test out changes I make to the Java code.

Is it possible to use shared libraries but *not* use JARs? Previous to using shared libs I was using the ws.ext.dirs attribute on the server JVM to point to the root folder of various class paths, e.g.

c:\myApplication\myJavaProject\;c:\myApplication\anotherJavaProject\;

This has become something like this in my libraries XML file:



Ideally I'd like to change this so that it worked as before, pointing to the root of the package folder structure:



Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work. Is there something I've missed out, or is this just not possible using shared libs?

Many thanks,

Dan
