Use libraries provided by Blackboard Learn for Building Blocks at runtime

Hi to All,

when I develop a Building Block, I'm used to add some dependencies (via Maven) which are required for the compile time and the run time, e. g.:

  • spring-webmvc
  • slf4j
  • commons-lang (or commons-lang3)
  • others...

These jars are then put in the "WEB-INF/lib" folder of the packaged WAR file.

What I'm wondering is if I can avoid adding these jars to the WAR, because they are already present in the subfolders of Blackboard Learn home folder: I can find them in "/libs" and "systemlibs".


Is this possible? If yes, how?


Thanks in advance
