    ejbTimeout java.lang.NullPointerException

    Kyle Bober Newbie

      I have an EJBTimer stateless session bean. I kick of the timer via a JMX bean and all works fine. It is when I restart the JBoss server that I am running into an issue.

      I noticed that when I startup JBoss I receive the following error:

      When the EJBTimer @Timeout method is called I receive the following error:
