In an ear, you can't.  We go to a lot of trouble to make sure all  
ejbs are started before any wars so that if you need to look up an  
ejb in a servlet init method you can.

If the apps are packaged separately, you can make the ejb app depend  
on the web app and the web app will be started first.

Out of curiousity, why do you need to start the web app first?
