In our application, we have one main group of classes. This group of classes are used by both our main application and by our client side applet. Currently, we put these classes in the deploy directory so that we can deploy multiple .ears and have all these .ears have visibility to the cental classes. Now comes the issue where I want to deploy the applet as well. The applet needs visibility into these classes as well. How would I handle this? Do I just put the 1 applet class in the war and deploy it as such and will it find the classes up in the main deploy directory or will the applet need all the classes that the main applet class references as well? How would I handle this configuration or is it not possible to do this type of design?
