 * An implementation of LifeCycleListener that loads a native library into the JVM.
 * <p>
 * Native libraries are associated with the class loader of the class that loaded them, and the same library may not be
 * loaded by more than one class loader. Due to that restriction, loading a native library from a Webapp's class loader
 * makes it impossible for other Webapps to load the native library.
 * <p>
 * Loading the native library using this listener solves the issue as it is loaded by a shared class loader (typically
 * the Common class loader, but may vary in some configurations).
