Hi Dru, 

sorry for the quick short reply, but are you considering using maven1 or 
maven2 for this project?

I don't know much about maven1, but if you are considering using maven2 for 
this my initial impression is that you would be best served to give up the 
notion on how it will work with ant or partially with ant and take a look at 
the project from strictly an m2 perspective..

if m2 is the route you are thinking of taking then I can probably at least 
point you in the right direction since the project I have setup in m2 
involves ejbs, wars, ear and some webservices thrown in for good measure :)

I forget who said it, but if you want to go the maven2 route you need to 
embrace the philosophy of m2 and see how it solves you problem...not try and 
wedge it into your old way of doing things.
