I have used the 1st approach given by you (having the dependency jar entry in manifest file) and it worked very well.
Thank you for the information.

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
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.
