When creating an XPage we need to write business logic.  In order to have reusable business logic (that may be called from an agent, a Notes Form or an XPage) the business logic must be written in Java.
The Java code is best placed in a .jar file.
The jar file may be stored in the .nsf file.  So far so good.
However, when building an application using a template (.ntf file) the .jar file is not considered a real design element: it is not being refreshed when the design of a database is refreshed.
In our company we have a single .ntf file and about 150 instances of it (150 .nsf files).  We consider migrating to XPages + Java.  When upgrading the business logic we will have to manually replace the jar file in 150 databases.
Proposed solution: in Notes designer we have already Lotusscript libraries, Javascript libraries and also Java libraries.  The Java library should be accessible as a resource in the XPage.  These libraries participate already in the refresh design process.
