could you be more specific about the problem that you had?

We have a very similar situation where we have a single EAR file which contains APPEJB.jar - this .jar uses struts.jar which is referenced in a seperate project.

Inside this .EAR file we also have the webcontent.war - this .war naturally also references struts.jar - (we've tried both by having struts.jar in the WEB-INF/libs and by referencing the same external project as APPEJB.jar) - when we try and pass a LabelValueBean from the EJB to the webApp we get a ClassCastException.

I'm assuming this is because it's getting confused as to which class to use (even if they both reference the same .jar) - how should we package struts.jar in this case (or pass objects between the two sides).

I've checked the JMX console for org.apache.struts.util.LabelValueBean and it only shows 1 instance being loaded (from the .war file if packaged in there or from the ear if packaged in the common 3rd project)

We are trying to migrate a legacy application away from Websphere and onto jBoss and this is the last issues that we are struggling with.   Any pointers would be gratefully received.
