There are a multitude of examples where jQuery libraries and plugins are used in SharePoint 2010 and 2013 solutions.
There are problems with this approach because multiple versions of jQuery can be available in various locations on the server (when deployed) and in various sites where jQuery is imported as a point solution. In some scenarios the paths to jQuery are directly specifying a jQuery version e.g. /_layouts/mySolution/scripts/jQuery_v_1.11.1.js
What is a good strategy to manage jQuery libraries so that they are deployed once to the Farm and not imported into every solution that is deployed?
