    ....
    Processing ear entry test.web.war for updatefile
    
    Jar or war file had no non-stub classes

    archive (WAR) file does not contain remote interface classes
    for a level 3.0 enterprise bean.

Local fix

  • Temporarily remove the war or jar file from the ear, run the
    command to generate the EJB stubs and then put the war or jar
    back into the ear.
