Use External Java JAR Files within Jython

When developing new Jython scripts, external Java Libraries (JAR files) or third-party executable files are sometimes needed as Java utility archives, connection archives such as JDBC Driver JAR files, or executable files (for example, nmap.exe is used for credential-less discovery).

These resources should be bundled in the package under the External Resources folder. Any resource put in this folder is automatically sent to any Probe that connects to your Universal CMDB server.

In addition, when discovery is launched, any JAR file resource is loaded into the Jython's classpath, making all the classes within it available for import and use.
