Re: netbeans doesn't create lib directory under dist
NetBeans isn't supposed to put a lib directory under dist/. It goes in
build/. dist/ is where the JAR / WAR / EAR files go.

By golly, you're right. It sure looks like a NetBeans bug to me.
I had gotten so used to web apps that I forgot to double-check application
It has its advantages and disadvantages. It is convenient that the application
is self-contained and means the application can be easily tested outside of
NetBeans. But if you are building several applications all of which have
similar dependencies then you end up with a huge amount of duplication.
