J2EE spec is not very clear whether it is possible to make EJB local calls between beans that are deployed in different EARs (but within the same app-server, of course).
Detailed scenario: I would like BeanA to call BeanB using an EJB local call. BeanA is deployed in beana.ear and BeanB in beanb.ear. Of course beana.ear contains a JAR with the EJB local interfaces of BeanB.
Is this possible at all or do I have to use remote calls?
