I think the lesson that must be learned from Maven is that yes, your 
dependencies in a J2EE project must be a directed acyclic graph (DAG), 
that is, have a common package which has no dependencies on the rest of 
the project. Have your domain classes (dao's etc) depend on common,  
ejb's depend on common and dao, and finally the war depends on 
everything below it.  I suggest to get an idea, try to create a maven 
j2ee project and you'll see the layout.
