Is it possible for a EJB module to reference a WEB module? In the same EAR there is a EJB module (.jar) and a web module (.war). The classes in the EJB module use classes in the WEB module. But everytime I deploy the EAR and test the EJBs, 9iAS throws a ClassNotFoundException from the EJB.
I already tried to use a MANIFEST file in EJB.jar but I don't know which value I have to insert in the Class-Path attribute to reference classes in the web module.
Any help would be appreciated.

Luciano, This seems to me to be more of a design question (about ejb modules referencing web modules), so I'm moving it to: J2EE
Why does your ejb module need to refer to a web module? Does the web module also refer to the ejb module? You want to avoid circular dependencies.
Without knowing more about your situation, it looks like a refactoring is in order. The classes that are used by both the ejb module and web module can be moved to a separate "common" project/jar file. That way the structure is clearer and you don't have the awkward dependency structure.
