Sharing Library Files Between Applications - libGLMapCore.so

Discussion created by michael.ng on Mar 12, 2013
I noticed whenever a new ArcGIS Project for Android is created, the following library files are added to the project:

- armeabi/libGLMapCore.so
- armeabi-v7a/libGLMapCore.so

The total size for these 2 files is about 14MB. If user were to install 2 different apps that was developed using ArcGIS for Android, they will end up having 2 same copy of the library files on their device.

I would like to know whether these files can be shared between applications (e.g. install these library files to a particular directory on the device and the various apps that require these libraries will load it from there).
