Generally speaking an EAR contains a WAR. If you change a .ear, .war or .jar
extension to .zip on Windows you can see what's in them.

An EAR is an enterprise archive, a WAR is a web archivce, and a JAR is a
Java archive. An JAR cannot contain other JAR's, a WAR can contain JAR's,
and an EAR can contain WAR's and/or JAR's.

Do you have the source for the EJB's? You could add your class to it and
export it as an EAR.

Actually, you will have to add it to the existing EAR. The listener will
have to be in the web.xml file. You can do it manually, but it's a pain or
at least I have not found an easy way to do it once it's installed.

So, I guess here is the bottom line. Take the EAR EJB and import it into a
J2EE project on RDi (or WDSC), add your new class to the appropriate package
in the Web project and export it as an EAR.

I hope this makes a little sense, I don't know that I amm explaining this
very well.

I'm new to web stuff. So... pardon me if I ask silly question.

I've created a class that extends ServletContextListener and planed to
use it run some EJB methods that needs to be executed during container
startup. All our EJB are packaged into a EAR to deploy.
ServletContextListener is a web stuff and I'm assuming that it is
typically get deployed thru a WAR project. My question is that is there
a way to deploy my ServletContextListener class in the existing EJB EAR
