    Casting  arguments in an EJB   Urgent !!!

    dreu zel Novice

      How can I cast arguments in a bean ????

      bean.callprocess((Object) xxx)

      where the bean was defined as an object gives an execution failure

      any way to solve the problem ????
      any way to cast from one class to any parent class ????

          Can you please post the bean, interface and client classes?

            the BEAN :::::

            * @stateless Nothing is remembered in the bean itself
            * @Local ({LocalBeanInterface.class}) <<<< Tag CLASS or individual Method
            * @LocalBinding (jndiBinding="beanName")
            * @Remote ({RemoteBeanInterface.class})
            * @RemoteBinding (jndiBinding="beanName")
            * class bean implements LocalBeanInterface.RemoteBeanInterface
            * @statefull Call the same stud and all bean variables remain
            // a service request does not execute any initalisation or post actions
            //@Stateful(name="ejb/RequestBean") //global containers/DBXmlEJB //
            //@SecurityDomain("Cyclus") //Conf used Roles

            @RemoteBinding( jndiBinding="ejb/bean/remote") //global ejb/DBXmlEJB
            @LocalBinding( jndiBinding="ejb/bean/local") //global ejb/DBXmlEJB
            @Remote( interf.class)
            @Local( interf.class)

            public class Bean implements interf
            public String getDescriptor() {return "Bean MINEJB";}
            public String getStatus() {return "Bean MINEJB";}
            public void create()throws Exception {}
            public void destroy() {}
            public void disconnect(String Id) {}

            try {x2=ben.prcBEAN(this);} catch (Throwable e) {System.out.print("\n bean err object");} WORKS
            try {x3=ben.prcBEAN_s(ses);} catch (Throwable e) {System.out.print("\n bean err servlet");} FAILS
            try {x1=ben.prcBEAN("this is some text to return ");} catch (Throwable e) {System.out.print("\n bean text");} WORKS

            depending on what object is passed IT FAILS
            as soon it is a home brewed class i pass EJB do not function any more !!!

            ANY Suggestions

              Looks like you are calling the bean from a Servlet - is Tomcat configured to use the same classloader as the EJB3 deployment? I suspect it is not. So, the passed classes are incompatible since they are not in the same classloader. To enable Tomcat to use the JBoss classloader, set the UseJBossWebLoader attribute to true in Tomcat's jboss-service.xml

                Sorry I was out Yesterday

                THIS LOOKS LIKE A PATH !!!! I'll Try it immedialtly

                  Does this value has an impact on ECLIPSE JBOSS-Debugging
                  all debugging seems to be mixed up

                  "To enable Tomcat to use the JBoss classloader, set the UseJBossWebLoader attribute to true in Deploy\Tomcat's jboss-service.xml"

                  I'm investigating further

                    setting "UseJBossWebLoader" in


                    Using Jboss 4.0.4.GA local interfaces
                    Does definetly Corrupt the presentation of the ECLIPSE Debugger.
                    Even after a complete rebuild locations and traps are placed completly (let's say at random) all references have gone

                    I seem to have an additional problem corrupting the result

                    I verify the bean interface to be correct as I setup a JNDI Connection
                    (on servlet side)

                    JNDI beancalss ->>>> Beaner
                    beaner =Ctx.lookup(beanName)
                    if (beaner instanceof bean)
                    else ----> Beaner not derived from overall Bean Class

                    Appearently the Jboss-tomcat servlet does not recogise
                    beans passed from JNDI ??
                    an other classloader problem ???? works perfectly as

                    still trying to confirm/deney the original

                    ECLIPSE_JBOSS debugging syncronisation OK
                    JNDI --> Classes are recognised

                    ECLIPSE_JBOSS debugging syncronisation FAILS !!!!
                    JNDI --> Classes not recognised any more.
                    as far as can be seen the problem is NOT SOLVED
                    Still class desynchronisation beween Servlet and BEAN !!!!

                    Any other suggestions ?
