    Why use ear files?

    Fabricio Lemos Newbie

      On conventional JEE applications, there was an explanation on why to separate your applications on ejb modules and web modules and package the whole thing on an ear file. The purpose, I think, was to build ejb modules that were independent from the client code.

      With Seam, the web module java classes became ejbs, so there is not a separation of concerns anymore. In such case, is it a reasonable idea to deploy the whole application on a war and not use ear files anymore?
