The util(java project) should be placed in EAR's libs or use
MANIFEST.MF's Class-Path element. According to Java EE 5 spec -
EE.8.2.1Bundled Libraries (p. 155):

Libraries bundled with an application may be referenced in the following ways:

1. A JAR format file (such as a .jar file, .war file, or .rar file)
may reference a .jar file or directory by naming the referenced .jar
file or directory in a Class-Path header in the referencing JAR file's
Manifest file.

2. A .ear file may contain a directory that contains libraries
packaged in JAR files. The library-directory element of the .ear
file's deployment descriptor contains the name of this directory. If a
library-directory element isn't specified, or if the .ear file does
not contain a deployment descriptor, the directory named lib is used.

3. A web application may include libraries in the WEB-INF/lib
directory. See the Servlet specification for details.

Let us know what worked eventually.
