Subject RE: HELP: ejbjar tag and EJB exception.

For Ant 1.3/Ant 1.4 you can use the <support> element to add *files* to your
ejbjar. That isn't a great solution, though, IMHO. Once Ant 1.4 is released,
I will be adding code to slurp in all classes that your ejbjar depends on. A
patch has been submitted for this already.
