  | Fundamentally the problem appears to arise because the EJBs and the web application are loaded by different classloaders. If an EJB returns and ICEfaces-specific type, it may have the same class name, but will be a different class than ICEfaces expects (as running in the web application).

Should icefaces be split into icefaces-api.jar and icefaces-impl.jar? (In other words, we're looking for suggestions on how to best resolve this.) 

There are probably various ways to solve this problem, presumably you can do it by attaching more jars to the EAR classloader. (Obviously the JBossWebClassLoader was another solution.) I think the problem was really that I moved icefaces to the EAR classloader, but not facelets, and you were trying to load facelets from ICEfaces. Might have worked by moving facelets to the EAR classloader as well. I'm not an expert on this stuff. Anyway, its nonurgent, I just moved icefaces back to the WAR classloader.

You are definitely allowed to return non-primitive types from EJBs.
