I have to admit I don't understand why you try to put the SSB into both jars...
Well the reason was this was inherited code.
So lets say I only want to define the EJB in ONE of the jars and call it remotely from the JAR2.jar.
I tried @EJB TheOtherEJB remoteEjb
And this did not work, I got an error about IllegalArgumentException trying to assign some proxy to remoteEjb
Ideas? Or does @EJB not work for remote Ejbs?
