This adds the JAR file to the classpath (and still, this is not
true, the classpath is not correct, due to the use of a glob, but this
is not the point). This is not enough, Saxon has to be configured so
it knows that the function file:list() is implemented by a specific

The repo manager helps one to organise his/her applications and
libraries in one repository. It provides also scripts to run Saxon
from the command line with support for such repositories. And it
provides Java classes to simplify configuring Saxon from a Java
application if necessary.
Your users do not have to use the manager, but then they have to
configure Saxon properly. Like with the XAR file above, you can
either use it, or open it and use the JAR file inside (but then you
have to see with Saxon for details for configuring a Java extension).
