Hi Emily,

The rules) apply to each jar (archive). There is no merging, thus an app can contain three types of archives :
Non bean archives,
Implicit bean archives,
Explicit bean archives.

> • Directories in the JVM classpath
> The container is not required to support application client jar bean archives.
> A Java EE container is required by the Java EE specification to support Java EE modules. Other
> containers may or may not provide support for war, EJB jar or rar bean archives.
> The beans.xml file must be named:
> • META-INF/beans.xml , or,
> • in a war, WEB-INF/beans.xml or WEB-INF/classes/META-INF/beans.xml.
