In Eclipse, you can create a new "Application client" project, and add it to your existing Enterprise Application. The Eclipse help system describes them like this:
anonymous wrote : Application client projects contain the resources needed for application client modules. An application client module is used to contain a full-function client Java? application (non Web-based) that connects to and uses the J2EE resources defined in your server.
Have I understood this completely wrong? I have an EJB3 project with a Swing based client for it, and up till now I have had a monolithic project for both, and used the Packaging facility in JBoss IDE to package and deploy the EAR. Then I started looking into J2EE type projects. I just can't figure out why it automatically packages Application Clients inside the EAR? Aren't they supposed to be desktop applications??? How should I develop such desktop applications then?

Eclipse 3.2.1, JBossIDE 2.0.0beta2
