Many code examples assume that you know the prerequisites in order to use the class. For instance I'm setting up an ID server, which uses the class for JWT, and that class is not mentioned anywhere else, or where it shows up. It's just in the starter Class. I can't make my application find it.

TOTALLY right! I can't even count the times I've been in that situation. I'd like to think that's just because the author totally forgot to mention or explain the class, not because he/she avoided it...

Definitely a must to explain!
