On page 10-93 (Enterprise Java Beans 3.pdf by Frits), we have application.xml like this -
1. I believe the <java> module above is optional as we already defined in the app1EJB.jar/MANIFEST.MF Class-Path entry for app1EJBClient.jar file.
2. If we had to provide the above module in the application.xml, then app1EJB.jar/MANIFEST.MF Class-Path entry for app1EJBClient.jar file becomes optional. This is because of EAR classloader is shared across all the modules.
Please correct my understanding.
