> Is there any way to make this work under AS 4.2.2
Sure, just send me a large envelope full of unmarked, non-sequential 20 pound notes and I'll sort it out.
Seriously, if we say it does not work that is probably because, guess what, IT DOES NOT WORK.
That said, certain use cases can be made to work, if you happen to be willing to sacrifice your sanity and firstborn child. You will probably need to wait for the next full moon though, by which time JBossAS 5.0.0.CR2 + JBossTS 4.4.0.GA may present a better alternative anyhow.
