Axis should only require the classes that an RMI client for your EJBs would also require,
i.e. the home and remote interfaces of your EJBs and any value objects or exceptions that
might be thrown. I would imagine that your build process produces a JAR file for clients:
simply put that JAR into WEB-INF/lib of your Axis WAR file.

If you are using BEA Weblogic, I believe that you can create an APP-INF/lib directory in the
EAR file that is shared by all components of your EAR file, but I haven't tried it myself
and I don't know whether that is portable to other application servers (what server are you

Hope this helps,

I am not sure if the answer below solves the problem.  Correct me if I
am wrong.  I have the same problem, i.e.  in my environment, I have a
large number of jars which are part of my entire EJB application.  These
have a home under my EAR project, I am having to copy all my jars, which
contain classes that need to be exposed as webservices, under
axis/web-inf directory.  Is it necessary to maintain this second copy.

The answer below is referring to axis jars, and not to application jars.

Please clarify.

You can include the axis jar files in your application and add the
from the axis web.xml file to enable the bindings for the AxisServlet.

Then axis will have access to the classes deployed in your webapp.
