I'm trying to understand how to take advantage of shared archives.

It seems that this is done once per installation of java, right?

I did some initial exploration of the topic, some things I read maybe
suggest that multiple archives can be used? Can I also generate a shared
archive for my app?

As far as I know - NO - shared archive is for the JVM "core" shared
to load faster.

Of course there might be hacks to achieve this in latest OpenJDK builts
maybe with any code - you exploring on the topic should know better by

But normally this is not something you'll be doing per app esp. not in
environment such as Heroku.
