      Description

      Currently user can add custom jars by copying it into $GATEWAY_HOME/ext directory. However, there is no easy way to include native library (.so).
      The use case is: a lot of authentication mechanism libraries are implemented using C/C++ library. And user may want to integrate it with Knox.

      One of the option could be: user can add .so files into $GATEWAY_HOME/ext/native directory. At the same time, gateway service can include that directory through java.library.path property during start up. We can potentially use launcher.cfg to support it.

      Any other alternative approach?
