That's a really inefficient and error-prone way to do pathname expansion (file glob). Aside from having to create a pipeline, any whitespace will break the code (in which case $NF will contain only a portion of the filename). Just use the shell's standard features to do that, quote "$i" every time you use it, and you'll be iterating through matching filenames in a safe manner.

for i in *.ear; do
    # Whatever processing needs to be done on "$i"
