I am developing J2EE project in which a servlet calls an EJB on WAS 5.1.x using RSA 6. In the web project, I have made a reference to the EJB project such that there is no syntax error in the web project. A snippet of code is shown as follows:
The content of the /WebContent/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF is shown below, indicating the web project will reference the EJB Client JAR file "HdlrClient.jar":
Manifest-Version: 1.0 Class-Path: HdlrClient.jar
Finally, I look into the EAR file which already included the WAR file as "Modules" and the EJB Client JAR "HdlrClient.jar" as "Project Utility JARs" that I think the web servlet should be able to call the EJB as the client .class files are already include in the EAR file as a whole.
However, when I run the servlet after deploying the EAR file, WAS server complained the Class "HdlrHome" cannot be found:
E SRVE0026E: [Servlet Error]-[ejbs.HdlrHome]: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: ejbs.HdlrHome
