I have two projects.

1) common - for common utilities, need to be general as it can.

2)ejb - contain EJB beans.

project ejb allow to have references to project common, but project common can not have references to ejb.

Unfortuntly one of the utility need to access specfic session EJB bean that is in the ejb project and activate specfic method,

how can i resolve this reference problem

Thanks in advance.

How about taking this utility and placing it in the EJB project? Or making it a 3rd project that is dependent on both common and EJB? Its not a common by your definition.

Thanks Gadi for your fast answer.

I have already thought about putting it in the ejb project,
but the utility is general (not the part for accessing the EJB bean ofcourse) and also using threads and synchronization which is not allow in EJB, can it be solved by introducting of new interfaces that be in 3rd project like you suggest.

I prefer neither putting the whole utility in ejb project nor in other 3rd project unless I have no other choice.

You could define a proxy class that acts as if it were
an EJB. Everything passed to the proxy is passed to the
bean, everything returned from the bean is returned to
the invoker of the proxy method.

Don't pass the bean to the utility object directly, but
instead, wrap it in the proxy object and pass the proxy
to the utility instead. A simple interface definition
should do the tricky work ...

It doesn't matter in which project you'd stick the proxy
class (even project 3 would do fine)

kind regards

As gadio mentioned, it sounds like you need a new package. Seems like "common" should be objects common to all projects, and the utilities should move out of there in to a "util" package that can reference any others.

Can you elaborate more on the proxy approch?
