I do not have a spec with me. But until I was following the spec, the
enphasis was on declaring everything in the EBJ descriptor. Class-Path is
for extensions which is  fine. But an EJB app calling another can't hardly
be specified using Class-Path.

All those dependencies are in the XML descriptor. Are they not?
