by the way.
I am using jboss 4.0.5 with messaging 1.0.1.GA and Ejb3
I have found a workaround for my problem.
Somehow the SARDeployer does not invoke nested EJBDeployer, and I could not get it to work with dependencies.
My workaround is to create a ear, with two modules. First my Sar, and from that I factored out some ejb's and put them in a separate jar module.
Then everything works as it should.
Now, I need to package a ear in another ear.... havent done that before, dont know if it is possible.... trial and horror... hehe
