    GateIn with EJB3 injection problem

    D. Marantis Newbie

      First i've written a simple ejb applikation as jsf1.2 war file which use an external ejb function. this web application runs without any problems if i call it directly on a JBoss AS 5.1.


      But if i move the code from the normal jsf 1.2 war file to a GateIn 3.1 jsf portlet then the @ejb will not be instanced.


      So, what i've additional to do in a GateIn portlet to be possible to use an ejb3? (without using seam or spring)











      in my managed bean:


      public class UserBean {


      private EATestCalculatorIF ejbCalc;




      EJB is defined in a seperate jar file as



      public interface EATestCalculatorIF {

          public int add(int a, int b);




      public class EATestCalculatorImpl implements EATestCalculatorIF {

          public int add(int a, int b) {

              return a + b;





      The managed bean will be called correctly in the both (native jsf webapp and GateIn jsf portlet) but ...


      if i call the jsf page over the the GateIn portlet then

      this.ejbCalc.add(1,2) => NullPointer Exception! ejbCalc = null


      if i call the jsf page directly over the jsf web link then

      this.ejbCalc.add(1,2) => instanced and works correctly



      Only if i load the ejb in the portlet manually from the context like with ...


      Context context = new InitialContext();

      this.ejbCalc = (EATestCalculatorIF) context.lookup("EATestCalculator/local");


      ... i'll be able to use it.


      additional i've found in the server.log


      2011-10-24 12:33:52,880 SEVERE [javax.enterprise.resource.webcontainer.jsf.application] JSF1029: The specified InjectionProvider implementation 'org.jboss.web.jsf.integration.injection.JBossDelegatingInjectionProvider' does not implement the InjectionProvider interface.


      by using JBoss AS 5.1 + GateIn 3.1 + PortalBridge 2



      So, what i've to do for the @EJB injection in GateIn 3.1?
