Currently we are having a EAR with about 4 WARs. The Class file in one WAR is dependent on Classes in another WAR. To solve this problem we found a solution to mention those dependencies in the "jboss-deployment-structure.xml". But with the use of this XML we ended up in a problem. The size of the EAR file created using the JBoss IDE is 113 MB. The EAR for the same application build using RAD was just around 9 MB.
When we expanded the EAR created using JBoss to find out the reason for the size difference, we noticed that when the EAR was build, it is putting a copy of the dependent WARs inside the LIB folder the WAR that needs those dependencies. This eventually ballooned the sizes of the EAR so much.
Moved to JBoss Tools forum.
Can you provide an example project since i'm not able to reproduce what you are seeing.
Where is the war's in context of EAR in RAD ?
