Subject Re: ejbjar, jar, and manifests with JBoss

It's a while since I worked on the ejb tasks, so forgive me if I'm a
little hazy.

I'm not sure what is going on there. <ejbjar> uses the standard JDK
classes for writing jars - namely JarOutputStream and Manifest and it
should accept Class-Path entries. The manifest is read in from the file
    manifest = new Manifest(in);
and the Jar is created with
      = new JarOutputStream(new FileOutputStream(jarfile), manifest);

The per-bean system depends on the naming scheme you employ. Since you
have set naming="directory", you should be able to put a
file into the same directory as the deployment descriptor and ejbjar
should find it.
