It probably depends upon another
class you haven't included.
The verifier only reports it cannot load the class,
it does not give the reason why.
Try turning off the verifier on the EJBDeployer,
it should give a more informatitive error message
when it tries to load it at run time.
Thanks for your reply. Learned how to turn the verifier off now..
Also realized I've been deploying to Tomcat too long, as I had placed my classes under the META-INF/classes directory. (I know, it would have been WEB-INF/classes for Tomcat, but it slipped my mind)...
