We have an ear file with all our EJB jars and our web app war. All fine and dandy. There is also a group of jar files that are grouped into a directory separate from the ear. One the util classes in one of these separate jar files happens to want to try and access a bean.
Problem is, when we try to get the home out of the context, I get a "ClassDefNotFoundError". Not good.
I've played around with manifest files, but can't get the EJB home to be found by the loader that my util class is using.
Is there a nice way of doing this, or should we really look at re-evaluating our deployment plan?
