JBoss redid their classloader for version 3 and it is very 
counter-intuitive.  Basically, unless you use a jboss specific config file, 
when you deploy an EAR it will share classes from other ears!  IMNSHO this 
is a huge mistake.  The JBoss documentation says the classloaders were 
redesigned this way to more fully incorporate JMX.
