    any solutions for multiple entity module jars in one WAR?

    Alex Sun Newbie

      I want to divide my web application into some module jars(as my project is so large, and want to make deployment easier), each module jar contains the module spec entities. As in a WAR, i want these module jars use the root /WEB-INF/classes/persistence.xml, but after my tries, i am failed.

      my war packaging as follows:

      app.war/
       META-INF/
       MANIFEST.MF
       WEB-INF/
       web.xml
       components.xml
       faces-config.xml
       pages.xml
       classes/
       META-INF/
       orm.xml
       persistence.xml
       lib/
       my-module1.jar/
       META-INF/
       MANIFEST.MF
       components.xml
       org/
       jboss/
       module1/
       Entity1.class
       ...
       seam.properties
       ...
       home.xhtml
       entity1List.xhtml
       entity1.xhtml
       ...
       my-module2.jar/
       META-INF/
       MANIFEST.MF
       components.xml
       org/
       jboss/
       module2/
       Entity2.class
       ...
       seam.properties
       ...
       home.xhtml
       entity2List.xhtml
       entity2.xhtml
       ...
       ...
      
       login.xhtml
       register.xhtml
       ...
      


      at first, the problem is that JPA does not load these entities in module jars(sitted in /WEB-INF/lib directory), one solution is to add all entity classes in the /WEB-INF/classes/persistence.xml by declaring "class" element.
      but i just want not to edit these fussy elements in deployment time, so this solution is not suit for me.

      is there any solutions that i can just put a module jar into /WEB-INF/lib directory, and dont need to edit the root persistence.xml
