Sharing jars across different virtual machines

439412 Newbie

I'm developing couple of applications using a java library (.jar). Both applications run fine in their own virtual machine and things are fine.
However, i'm assuming that the library (although is being shared) is being linked into the byte code (generated by the compiler) and there by increasing the memory overhead of the application.

Is there anyway to actually share this library in JRE (just like .so files in c,c++)?
