It is not possible to deploy an ear with embedded.
Does anybody know if EAR files are still not supported in Embedded JBoss? The FAQ answer to this looks quite old, so I thought it would be worth asking the question again.
Sorry for the confusion.
It's not possible to deploy an ear in EJB 3 Embedded.
For Embedded JBoss go to it's forum and ask again.
(It should work though. :-) )
