Re: Purpose of version number install jar installation

I have long wondered what the purpose of including the version number in the installed name of a jar was.

I don't see one and still think they are a bad idea, as stated in http://lists.debian.org/debian-java/2003/07/msg00086.html

Most people disagreed at that time and it seems like they still do. Since I'm not very active any more in pkg-java I think the maintainers who do the actual work should decide. But at least I also like to know the purpose so I know why I'm wrong. :)
