[keycloak-dev] Deploying provider with dependencies

I've tried to package my provider JAR into an EAR, but that didn't work

The layout is the following:

+- foo-provider-0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar
   +- application.xml

When I put the JAR into the deployments subdir, it is deployed
successfully, initialization code is called etc. But when I drop the
EAR in the same subdir, there is only a successful deployment message.
The provider doesn't get initialized; seems like deployer doesn't
recurse into EAR contents. Tried to place the JAR into the "lib" subdir
inside EAR, this didn't work either. The EAR is generated by maven-ear-
plugin with the standard settings.

Am I missing something? Sorry for bugging you, but unfortunately there
is not much said in the docs about deploying providers from inside
EARs. A working example would be helpful as well.
