I did a workaround. In pom.xml the application.finalName property is defined to the name the ear will have and is used in build section finalName tag. I have a mbean which is configured via a *-service.xml file deployed in the ear. In there I have an attribute definition like this:

<attribute name="EarName">${application.finalName}</attribute>

Maven will replace the macro with the property value. Then I have a ServiceLocator singleton class which is used by all clients to lookup the services, it has a method like this:

private static String getEarName() {
        if(earName == null) {
            // This will lookup the name of the ear from our mbean
            MBeanServer mBeanServer = MBeanServerLocator.locateJBoss();
            try {
                earName = (String) mBeanServer.invoke( new ObjectName("com.limetransit.sms:service=LimeManagement"),
                        new Object[] {},
                        new String[] {}
            } catch(Exception e) {
        return earName + "/";

May not be the most beautiful solution but it works at least...
