Does anybody know if it is possible to deploy ebjs in separate jar or ear files if they reference each other via the local interface? (in Weblogic)
The only way that I can get it to work is to deploy ejbs that are referenced by a local interface in the same ear file as the ejb that references them.
If I remember correctly, for local refs to work properly, the ejbs must be colocated, so they need to be in the same JAR file, otherwise, it craps out.
I think the same ear file is the only way,because you must keep the client program in the same thread with the ejbs if you want to use local refs.
