    Adding @Schedule annotation using AOP is not working

    emanovic Newbie



      I already asked this question on AOP forum (http://community.jboss.org/message/623183#623183). But I am not sure if it is AOP or EJB problem, so I copy it here as well.


      I am trying to create schedule event using EJB3.1 @Schedule annotation. Everything works fine as long as I have the annotation inside my bean. I want to be able to change schedule in deployment time without repacking ear. So I want to add this annotation using AOP. But it doesn't work.


      Here is my sample bean:


      @AspectDomain(value = "TimerBeanDomain")


      public class TimerBean {

            public void timerMethod() {  

               System.out.println("Timer method activated");






      And here is my aop.xml:


      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

      <aop xmlns="urn:jboss:aop-beans:1.0">

           <domain name="TimerBeanDomain"> 

               <annotation expr="method(void *->timerMethod(..))>  

                   @javax.ejb.Schedule(second=*/30, minute=*, hour=*") 








      Bean is packed inside -ejb.jar, which is packed in .ear. AOP file is outside ear file.


      There are no errors in console. It just does not work.


      I tried it with stateless bean as well. In this case aop.xml looked like:

      <domain name="TimerBeanDomain" extends="Stateless Bean" inheritBindings="true"> 


      I tried JBoss 6.0.1 and JBoss 6.1.0 with same result.


      At least is there some way how to debug AOP process of adding annotation?


      Any help will be appreciated.
