Can some one tell me how to create one ear project with multiple war and jar files. As an example I have a inventory handling enterprise application and i need to develop it by using several war and jar projects such as orders.war,orders.jar, transfers.war,transfers.jar, payments.war,payments.jar ...etc. How can we build links between jsp pages in two different war projects in the same ear project. please help me to build eclipse project for this scenario

Multiple wars in an ear doesn't require any special consideration. It is considered standard packaging. Inspect your application.xml and add web modules.
I would suggest you go through this post to understand the problems/restrictions when having multiple war(s).

I agree. Here's the link:
