I think you may need to be more specific about your dependencies and  
what problems you're running into...

Placing jars in your ear's lib directory will make their classes  
available to the ear classloader, but system classloaders will still  
have priority over your ear classloader.

You'll still need to invert classloading or hide classes for this to  
work. Parent classloaders will still have priority... Something like




Sounds like you've tried using inverse-classloading. What problems  
have you encountered?
