a topic with the same name has been sent last year.
I'd also like to propose a restructure of the lib/ folder,
but in the opposite direction:
would it be possible to introduce an addtional folder level
between lib/ and the library name?
That would make it much easier to automate the process
of splitting the whole Spring Framework into the proposed
modules and their individual dependencies!
I've never heard of some of the jars before and since I only
use core, aop, dao, jdbc and transaction, it's very hard for
me to discover which jars can be safely omitted from the path.
I think it would also be a good idea to emphasize which
jars are really optional (like jdo-stuff, ibatis, ...):
What do you think?
