Exporting EJB 2.x projects to EJB JAR files

After you have tested your enterprise beans, you can export the module into an EJB JAR file.

When you export an EJB project, the contents of the project are exported into an EJB JAR file regardless of whether deployment code has been generated or not. You can use the exported server-side JAR file as the client JAR file, since it contains all of the required code from both a server-side and client-side perspective.

Important: If you use the Export EJB JAR file wizard to export an EJB project, the export wizard does not include an EJB project's associated EJB client JAR project. To include the EJB client JAR file, it is recommended that you export the enterprise application EAR file that contains the EJB project. The resulting EAR file will include any dependent EJB client JAR files as utility JAR files. Alternatively, you can export the EJB client JAR project separately as a JAR file.

To export an EJB project, complete the following steps:

  1. In the Project Explorer view of the Java™ EE perspective, right-click the EJB project that you want to export and select Export > EJB JAR File .
  2. In the EJB Project drop-down list, select the project you want to export if the name is not already filled in for you.
  3. In the Destination field, provide the full path and JAR file name for the exported EJB module.
  4. Optional: To include source files in the exported JAR file, select the Export source files check box.
  5. Optional: If you are exporting to an existing JAR file and you do not want to be warned about overwriting it, select Overwrite existing file.
  6. Click Finish.

To deploy your EJB JAR file to an application server after you export it, you need to use the deployment tools provided by the vendor of that server.
