I recently packaged my war file and ejb file into an ear for deployment.
- lib (struts.jar and alanutil.jar)
I am deploying this from a directory called allan.ear (exploded format).
I am using the manifest entries to refer to the struts jar in the EAR's lib directory.
I don't know if these two things are exactly related, but since the move to an ear file, I can't do a remote debug session to the jboss process (using IDEA).
Also related is the fact that an object put into request state by the action implementation seems to be lost during the processing of the request (inserted valid object, JSP pulls out a null value).
Lastly, logging messages (using standard JBoss Appenders) are not being pushed the log file.
I have a feeling that this is a class loader issue, but can't quite figure out what is going on.
I am using JBoss/Jetty 3.2.1
Any help is greatly appreciated.

The format of my ear file description was lost.
application.xml is in fact in the META-INF folder.
