    Deploying EJB 2.1 on JBoss 5.1

    Rohit Macherla Novice

      Hi all,

       

      I am using JBoss 4.2.2.GA and want to migrate to JBoss 5.1. I have some vendor specific EAR files that I have to use (basically they are JAX-WS webservices implemented via stateless session beans). These are quite old and follow the EJB 2.1 specs. When I try to deploy them onto JBoss 5.1, I get the following exception :

      Looking at this I am under the impression that they are speaking about EJB3. I haven't still got in touch with EJB3. There are no annotations used in the vendor specific EAR files as they deal with EJB2.1

      Is there any way to migrate to JBoss 5.1 using my EJB2.1 compliant EJB's ?

       

      My App structure :

       

      CustomerManagement.ear

      |

      |--- META-INF

      |               |---application.xml

      |               |---jboss-app.xml

      |               |---Manifest.mf

      |

      |---CustomerManagement-ejb.jar

      |               |

      |               |--ejb-jar.xml

      |               |---jboss.xml

      |               |---Manifest.mf

      |               |---<other class files>

      |

      |---CustomerManagement-war

      |               |

      |               |--- META-INF

      |               |               |---sun-jaxws.xml

      |               |               |---web.xml

      |               |               |

      |               |               |---classes

      |               |               |          |---<other class files>

      X              X              X

       

      Please help.

       

      Cheers
