    NullPointerException in JavaEEComponentHelper with JBoss-5.1

    Jacek Palka Newbie

      Hi,

      Our EJB3 application deploys without problems in JBoss 4.3, but in 5.x I get NullPointerException in JavaEEComponentHelper.

      I've started my tests in JBoss 5.0.1GA (jdk6) and got this problem, so after some googling I found a thread describing a similar problem in previous version of JBoss (http://www.jboss.org/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=138480) and related JIRA (https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBAS-5713) stated that the problem has been resolved in JBoss 5.1.0.Beta1.

      So I've downloaded this version (also jdk6), but the problem is still there.

          Could you please explain a bit more about your application packaging? What does the EAR contain? Post the output of

          jar -tf ifsapp.ear


          Also do you have a application.xml? If yes, please post its contents.

            Hmmm, do you have a bean which is having a @EJB to inject another bean? And do these two beans reside in two separate jar files?

              Many thanks for the prompt response!

              Our application consists of quite a large number of EJBs and a couple of war applications - traditional servlets and web services (with annotations).

              Only EJB3 EJBs. With one or two exceptions we don't have ejb-jar.xml deployment descriptors.

              But we do have applications.xml; here comes its content:

              And yes, we're using @EJB injections to inject beans residing in separate jar files.

              Once again, many thanks for help!

                I haven't looked at the complete list of your EJB jars in the application.xml that you posted. But could you please see if this is related to https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/EJBTHREE-1751. See my comments in that JIRA related to deployment ordering. That issue also mentions a couple of workaround. Please try those. Let us know how it goes.

                  Hi again,

                  It took some time, but finally I could manage to test one of the suggested workarrounds.

                  EJBs in our application are automatically generated, so I can't easily rename the jar files, but I could manage to customize our code generator to use the 'mappedName' attribute.
                  Unfortunately it still fails, but this time with another exception:

                  I have tested the application in 4.3 and it works.

                  An example of how the EJB declaration looks like:

                  @Stateless(name="UserProfileService")
                  public class UserProfileServiceBean extends FndImplementationBean implements UserProfileServiceLocal { ...
                  


                  And how we refer to the same EJB; the original code:

                  @EJB private UserProfileServiceLocal userProfileService;
                  


                  and now, after introducing the 'mappedName' attribute:

                  @EJB(mappedName="ifsapp/UserProfileService/local") private UserProfileServiceLocal userProfileService;

                    From this code/logs, i don't see a reason why you should be getting that exception. Can you create a simple application which shows this issue and create a JIRA at https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/EJBTHREE. Attach the application to the issue. I'll take a look.

                      Just before the NPE there should a log debug message starting with:

                      If so, please post it.

                        Hi,

                        I have no such message in the console window. On the other hand I have only INFO, WARNING and ERROR messages. I can start the server with DEBUG enabled, but for which category?

                        The server.log file, on the other hand, seems to have all the debug lines, but even there I couldn't find any such message. I can send the entire file, if necessary, but it is almost 23 MB large!

                        To create a simple application can be quite difficult because we don't really know what the problem is. I can probably create an application that would be much simpler then the one I'm trying to deploy, i.e. containing just a couple of EJBs, but is still build (generated) based on our framework. But I'm not allowed to send such application other then through Red Hat support channel.

                        I have already created a simple application (still based on our framework) with only one, generated EJB (totally two; one resides in the framework) and could, in fact, deploy and run this application.

                        But the EJB injection we have in our web services doesn't seem to work - variables defined as:

                        @EJB private ifs.application.connecttestorder.TestOrderInteractionLocal local;
                        


                        are null run time and only traditional look up is working. The EJBs in this simple application don't have any mutual references, so maybe the problem lies in EJB injection?

                        I can try to create a simple application with just a couple of EJBs referring to each other (with EJB injection, as we generate our code) and supply with more info/error stack.

                          The DEBUG logs are available in server.log (as you note later in this post). We would mainly be interested in org.jboss.ejb3 DEBUG logs.

                          The actual problem that we see in this issue (and the one noted in the JIRA) is related to ordering of deployment units. So if you have a EJB in one jar and the EJB depends on some other EJB in a different jar, then chances are that because of deployment ordering, the injection might fail. If both those EJBs are within the same jar then you wont be noticing this issue. This issue is specific to AS-5.x.

                          From my understanding of this issue, i would have expected the mappedName attribute on @EJB injection to fix the issue with injection (even if the EJBs are in different jars).

                              Hi,

                              As requested I have now attached the zipped server.log file. I've also tested two other simple applications build upon our framework (generated code) with only two EJBs with EJB injection.

                              Content of those two applications:


                              jar -tf ifstest-ab.ear
                              META-INF/
                              META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
                              applicationsupport-ejb.jar
                              atestutlpkg-ejb.jar
                              btestservice-ejb.jar
                              enumerations.jar
                              ifs-fndfw.jar
                              ifs-wstest.war
                              ifs.properties
                              META-INF/application.xml



                              jar -tf ifstest-cd.ear
                              META-INF/
                              META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
                              applicationsupport-ejb.jar
                              ctestservice-ejb.jar
                              dtestutlpkg-ejb.jar
                              enumerations.jar
                              ifs-fndfw.jar
                              ifs-wstest.war
                              ifs.properties
                              META-INF/application.xml


                              In ifstest-ab.ear my web service is calling EJB contained within btestservice-ejb.jar, which in turn is calling an EJB in atestutlpkg-ejb.jar.
                              In the second application, ifstest-cd.ear, the situation is the opposite: my web service makes a call to ctestservice-ejb.jar, which calls dtestutlpkg-ejb.jar.

                              Both test applications are working, i.e. I don't have any problems related to the deployment order. And I don't use mappedName attribute in those test applications.

                              But I still have problems with EJB injection in my web service - the same one as in the "big" ifsapp.ear.

                              An example of how our web service looks like:

                              @WebService
                              public class BTestHandler
                              {
                               @EJB
                               private ifs.application.btestservice.BTestHandlerLocal local;
                              
                               private void checkInterface( Logger _log ) throws javax.naming.NamingException
                               {
                               if( local==null )
                               {
                               if(_log.warning) _log.warning("EJB injection doesn't work; interface is null. Looking it up...");
                               local = (ifs.application.btestservice.BTestHandlerLocal)EjbUtils.lookupAnnotatedBean("BTestHandler", _log);
                               }
                               }
                              
                               @WebMethod
                               public String sayHello( @WebParam(name="name") String name ) throws WebServiceException
                               {
                               Logger _log = LogMgr.getFrameworkLogger();
                              
                               try
                               {
                               ifs.application.btestservice.BTestServiceViews.V1 _param = new ifs.application.btestservice.BTestServiceViews.V1();
                               _param.name.setValue(name);
                              
                               checkInterface(_log);
                              
                               _param = (ifs.application.btestservice.BTestServiceViews.V1)local.sayHello(_param, FndContext.getCurrentContext()).getResult();
                              
                               return _param.result.getValue();
                               }
                               catch( Throwable t )
                               {
                               _log.error(t);
                               throw new WebServiceException(t);
                               }
                               }
                              }
                              


                              The checkInterface() method I've added after discovering that EJB injection doesn't work. And I see the warning message...

                                I've also tried to modify my web service class to use the 'mappedNme' attribute:

                                @EJB(mappedName="ifstest-ab/BTestHandler/local")
                                private ifs.application.btestservice.BTestHandlerLocal local;
                                


                                Still nothing injected...

                                  Injection in webservices isn't handled by EJBTHREE project. It's done from JBossWS. Let me see if they already have any issues open, related to this.

                                    After reading a few related posts, i realize that injection in webservice is supported only for EJB3 endpoints http://www.jboss.org/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=126665#4117577

                                    Which means that you should additionally annotate the WebService as a @Stateless

                                    @Stateless
                                    @WebService
