I am currently using MEB2016. The project I am working with on the deployed production server has an ear size of 135K. Locally deployed it’s 245MB – which is including all the IBM runtime files. In the previous version of MyEclipse there were distinct deployment settings to turn off the runtime jars. However, cannot seem to locate corresponding functionality in the current version.
In the newer versions of MyEclipse, your projects’s final archive can be customized using the Deployment Assembly page. Right click on the project > Properties > MyEclipse > Deployment Assembly. You can remove the files that you do not want to be deployed with the project from this page.
If you are still seeing issues, then please share with us more details about how you are referencing the IBM runtime files in your project along with a screenshot of the Deployment Assembly page to help us get a visual.
