I am using a 3rd party jar that needs to have a license file deployed in the same directory as the jar. I included the license file in the ear, but when I go to the directory that JBoss deploys the ear to, the license file is not there and my application fails. As a sanity check, I made sure that the license file was in fact present in the ear file. When I copy the license file manually, my application works fine. Is there a way that I can tell the deployer not to ignore the license file?
