I am wondering if I have some redundancies in the way I have set up my project. I have created a working jar for my application, easier to run a test locally for me. It is completely self contained with its own spring configuration, i.e. I can run as a java application. (I have several modules like this.)
I have also created a spring mvc app that I will use to run/monitor this application in tomcat. The jar is a dependency of the mvc app and has its own controller.
Would this be considered a bad practice? Everything works but it occurred to me the other day this may not be the best way to do things.
I hope that I am explaining this properly.
Basically my war has a spring config but my jar also has a spring config.
Any and all thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
