Actually we are interested on two things.
a) Is it possible to have a war inside an esb project?
b) I think the approach that we would prefer would be to have an EAR that bundles
i) the utility jars
ii) the administration war
iii) the esb
iv) whatever else comes in the future.
It seems I cannot add using the eclipse jboss esb tools an esb project into an ear.
Does this work if I do it manually using ant?
It is possible to pack a WAR into an ESB archive - I think you can take a look at the native_client or the helloworld_hibernate_action QS among others for examples.
