Fred, can you retry this with JBossAS 4.2.0GA. 4.2.1GA was only released in the last few days, so we haven't had a chance to try it out yet.
Also, check the original JIRA, which has more information from TomC on it.
Here's how the jboss-esb-console works with releases:
JBossESB-4.2.0.MR2 : With MR2, the jboss-esb-console works with 4.0.5.GA but *must* be used with a 4.0.5.GA with the EJB3 profile. Use the JEMS installer (http://labs.jboss.com/jemsinstaller/downloads) version 1.2.0.GA and choose "EJB3" as your profile during installation. I just tested and confirmed this works.
JBossESB-4.2.0.MR3 / current trunk : With MR3, the jboss-esb-console will work with 4.0.5.GA, 4.2.0.GA, and 4.2.1.GA. Follow the ant prompt instructions carefully, because the ant build script chooses configuration files based on what version of JSF your container has by default (choose myfaces for 4.0.5.GA and jbossfaces for 4.2.1.GA).
with 4.2.0 it is the same as with 4.2.1, i.e. myfaces is missing :
Fredo - that's correct, if you build the jboss-esb-console contained in MR2, it will only work in jboss-4.0.5.GA w/EJB3 profile.
If you want one that works with jboss-4.2.0.GA or jboss-4.2.1.GA you can build it from the SVN trunk or wait a few days until MR3 has been released.
ok I confirm, it works with 4.0.5-EJB3
thanks you for your reactivity :-)
