My collegue and I have an issue deploying an application. We have an unique situation. We have a "primary" application that is packaged into an "ear" file and deployed in WebLoigc application server. But, what we are trying to do is to create a "secondary" applicaiton that's executed at command line. This secondary application needs the same jar files contained in the "ear" file.
Are you folks aware of any ideas that allows us to leverage the "ear" file to set up the environment for the secondary application.
Are there any approaches that make the build process for both the applications centralized.
