You could use <copypath> in ant1.7, or the resource stuff. One thing you 
need to do w/ EAR files is to flatten the copy if they come from a dir 
tree, as you normally want all the JAR files in the root of the EAR. 
that is, unless you are doing complex things with JAR manifests, 
persist.xml and the like
