Does anyone have any advice on how to bundle up common headers/footers that are just plain html into a jar/war that can be used across multiple dynamic web applications without bundling them in all of the applications? What I have so far is a jar file with common headers and footers, as well as some classes, that will be used across multiple applications. I have set up a shared library for the jar in WAS Express 5.0, added this to the classloader and have verified that the jsp can import the package. The problem is I can't seem to get any .html files from the jar included into the jsp. The jsp only seems to be able to include files from it's own WebContent directory. I really don't want to have to bundle this common jar with every application, but it seems like my whole approach is wrong. Any advice is appreciated, I'm a newbie.
