    Preview the next EJB 3 implementation bundled in JBoss AS 5.

      A new release of the EJB 3 module is available bundled into JBoss Application Server 5.0.0.Beta3.

      Download it from sourceforge
      or through the jboss.org labs page.

      This is the last Beta release of the *JBoss 5.0.x* series for the *Java EE?* 5 codebase! This release completes a big round of refactorings related to the transformation of JBossAS into a pure POJO-based server. There should be no API changes from this point on as we move closer to a final release.

      JBoss 5 is the next generation of the JBoss Application Server build on top of the new JBoss Microcontainer. The JBoss Microcontainer is a lightweight container for managing POJOs, their deployment, configuration and lifecycle. It is a standalone project that replaces the famous JBoss JMX Microkernel of the 3.x and 4.x JBoss series. The Microcontainer integrates nicely with the JBoss framework for Aspect Oriented Programming, JBoss AOP.
      Support for JMX in JBoss 5 remains strong and MBean services written against the old Microkernel are expected to work.

      Detailed release notes:


      Note that this release is NOT backwards compatible with AS 4.2, so expect some migration issues. More information can be found here: http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=ToAS5.0.0.Beta3.

          I might be missing something here but it appears cglib.jar is missing from the distribution:

          mjhammel(tty4)$ pwd
          mjhammel(tty4)$ find . -iname "*cglib*"
          mjhammel(tty4)$ find . -iname "*dom4j*"

          I use Hibernate for reverse engineering a db and this process fails without this jar file:

          [hibernatetool] Executing Hibernate Tool with a JDBC Configuration (for reverse engineering)
          [hibernatetool] 1. task: hbm2hbmxml (Generates a set of hbm.xml files)
          [hibernatetool] - Hibernate 3.2.4.sp1
          [hibernatetool] - hibernate.properties not found
          [hibernatetool] - Bytecode provider name : cglib
          [hibernatetool] - using JDK 1.4 java.sql.Timestamp handling
