using classes outside the webapp

Hello all javafreaks!
I've got a webapp (.war) up and running. As long as I only use the classes within this webapp everything works good, but when I try to reach one that is in another webapp I obviously run into trouble ... is there any way around this? Can I somehow include this webapp in another one and by doing so getting permissions to use those classes and packages?

Regards

You need to use an EAR file, which will contain your web apps. Place utility JAR files and EJB's at the root EAR level, and they automatically become available to your web apps.
