    Can't find branch for FD8 release, posted documentation is o

      To start off, before this relatively negative post: THANKS!!! JBOSS is the sh*t. I love the attitude, I love the ethic, and I love the risk taking. This is business as it should be, and it rocks.

      That said:

      1. The EJB 3.0 releases don't contain source, making it difficult to attach source in IDEs for debugging

      2. I've been searching for a long time in the CVS repository and can't seem to find the version tag for releases, meaning that I can't find the accurate sources for what I'm using in order to get around problem 1

      3. The online Javadocs are *** seriously *** out of date, meaning I can't attach to those in the IDE either.

      4. Responsiveness on this forum is lackluster at the very best. I'm a paying customer, so I get to complain about that vociferously ;-)

      In any case: I think JBoss' future is closely tied to it's EJB 3.0 product's success. Just an opinion. But I'd imagine it's a reasonable one. So I suggest some better packaging, QA (on the Install doc, for example, that's a pitiful situation), and document/source policies. Look to Seam/Hibernate for examples. The source is in their distro. Frankly they package too much in their distro, but its the right choice, and it makes life easy.

          Welcome to frustration while searching code. Ive tried this before and am still not very comfortable at locating branches and source codes to attach to Idea. Anyway , here are some answers that might help.

          The EJB3.0 sources are part of the JBoss_4_0 branch and can be obtained here
          https://svn.jboss.org/repos/jbossas/branches/Branch_4_0/
          The subtrees are ejb3 and ejb3x

          These got shifted to SVN sometime late July I think and SVN seems to be more easier to navigate( Fisheye sucks if you dont know the branch or tag names). Also, Fisheye does not seem to have any tag information, so unless you know the tag for a subtree, you are lost. Anyway, if you are able to find out the tag/branch names from any of the commit messages, here is how to do the browsing for a particular tree
          fisheye.labs.jboss.com/viewrep/~tag=JBoss_Seam_1_0_1_GA/JBoss/jboss-seam
          That would fetch the JBoss_Seam_1_0_1_GA tag for Seam and I got the tagname from one of the commit messages. I honestly have no idea how to do it generically

            Thanks, Raja. Very much appreciate the info! And hurray for subversion. I should have realized they switched.
