EJB Client jar location

When creating EJB client JAR file in RAD 8.5, depending on the steps taken, the location of the jar is either root of the EAR or the EAR lib directory.

This becomes confudsing to the developers.

This is also affecting our common build script we are working on for deciding the location of the jar in the generated EAR.

I am working with Brian Young from IBM on the PMR listed above.


I saw a similar request related to RAD 8 from about a year ago, but did not see any comments from Rational Team on it.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
