Deployment order in JBoss AS7

Bruno Santos Newbie

Hi all!


Does anyone know how I can ensure the deployment order of the wars inside a ear? In JBoss 6 there was a deployment sorter but for JBoss 7 I haven't been able to find anything related to this issue.

    In your application.xml and then list the modules in the order you would like them intialized.

    But in application.xml you have to use application schema 6 http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/application_6.xsd.

    I was using 5...

    My application has a bunch of MDBs and RAs (resource adapter) and a WAR, all packaged together.  I want these modules to be loaded in a specific order.  My application is currently using application schema 5. 


    I tried using "initialize-in-order", and also tried changing my application schema to 6, but I am not able to define the order in which I want these sub-deployment modules to be loaded.  For insteance, few of my MDBs have strict dependency on RAs, so I want some of these RAs to be loaded before MDBs starts deploying.


    I also tried debugging the JBoss AS7 code, but I don't see org.jboss.ejb3.annotation.Depends annotation on MDBs being entertained anywhere in the code.  Am I missing something?


    How can I explicitly mention the deployment order?




    EDIT: I am using 7.1 Alpha2 nightly build.
