I have a 2-tier application in a EAR file, consist of EJB3/persistence layer (.jar) and a CXF2/webservice layer (.war). The webservice layer need to use the EJB3 beans from the EJB layer to provide web services to the front-end clients.
The EJB layer compiled ok. I also configured the webservice layer to use the ejb layer using a "provided" reference in the pom.xml file.

The EAR is going to be deployed in JBOSS AS7.
Is there anything wrong with my architecture and what is wrong with my project setup?
Any suggestion is very appreciated.
