    Migration problem to JBoss 5 GA


      I downloaded JBoss 5.0 GA and tried to migrate my application from 4.2.3 GA to 5.0 GA.
      My application is Web application consists of Remote & Local EJBs and JSF Facelets.

      The problem is that war file is deployed correctly however i can not reach EJB's since they are not deployed and not having a JNDI name mapped like previous release:


      And giving these errors on startup:

      03:10:22,327 INFO [SessionSpecContainer] Starting jboss.j2ee:ear=test.ear,jar=testEjb.jar,name=UsrEJB,service=EJB3
      03:10:22,328 INFO [EJBContainer] STARTED EJB: com.test.model.ejb.system.UsrEJBBean ejbName: UsrEJB
      03:10:22,328 INFO [JndiSessionRegistrarBase] Binding the following Entries in Global JNDI:
      03:10:22,442 WARN [WebServiceDeployerEJB] Ingore ejb deployment with null classname: org.jboss.metadata.ejb.jboss.JBossSessionBeanMetaData@97955a49{UsrEJB}

      And JNDI-Lookup:

      java:comp namespace of the component jboss.j2ee:ear=test.ear,jar=testEjb.jar,name=UsrEJB,service=EJB3 :

      And they are not listed under Global JNDI Namespace. How can i resolve that problem?

          That looks strange. Can you please post the entire console logs and the bean interface and implementation class code including the import statements in those classes. Also please post the JNDI tree contents.

          While posting logs or xml content or code, please remember to wrap it in a code block by using the Code button in the message editor window. Please use the Preview button to ensure your post is correctly formatted.

            Hi.. Thank you for your reply. This EJB work with JBoss 4.2.3 GA and does not work with JBoss 5.0 GA

            package com.test.model.ejb.system;
            import com.test.model.entity.system.Usr;
            import javax.ejb.Stateless;
            @Stateless(name = "UsrEJB")
            public class UsrEJBBean implements UsrEJB, UsrEJBLocal {
             @PersistenceContext(name = "testPU")
             EntityManager em;
             public UsrEJBBean() {
             public Usr persist(Usr usrEntity) {
             return usrEntity;

            It does not give any error, just warnings but it does not bind EJB to JNDI Tree like JBoss 4.2.3 GA.

            Related Console logs when i deploy:

              The problem is that SessionBean implements 2 interfaces. Local and Remote. Since Remote interfaces has no methods inside while Local one has all methods that SessionBean implements.

              Removing Remote interface has solved the issue, however it looks like a bug or any unacceptable design pattern that previous release does not show any warnings neither new release does..
