Hi Experts
I need to add dependencies jars to a maven project programmatically at runtime. The reason I want to do that because I cannot add them all at the beginning since they can be thousands of jars and the user only picks  one or two. I googled the internet but it was not very clear since some people say Don’t do that . I really need an expert-advice

Thanks

Hmm, could you possibly merge the jars into a single jar or just a few?

no I can't because the purpose of the solution is to have different jars that can be shared between different teams.

I figured out that just adding a dependency block to the POM.XML does the job. My question is now, is there any API to do that or do I have to program that myself ?

Thanks
