|[eclipselink-dev] Question about external dependencies.
All,Until recently I didn't use the "extension.lib.external" or "extension.oracle.lib.external" directories. I am curious why we need two. I'd think that the oracle jdbc drivers and all other external dependencies are named differently than each other.
Wouldn't a single directory be more efficient?Also wouldn't defining a variable "extensions.depend.dir" make more sense that a plethora of explicit library definitions?
jdbc=../extension.lib.external/jdbc.jar junit=../extension.lib.external/junit.jar ....That way the minimum redefinition would be a single value (extensions.depend.dir), unless someone chooses to store them separately thus requiring a redefinition of all the external dependency library values.
