    Getting exception

    Kent Larsson Newbie


      I'm having trouble getting the Embedded JBoss EJB 3.0 container to work. I've bashed my head against this problem for a while now and I can't seem to get it to work. I hope that someone here is able to help me out. :-/

      To set Embedded JBoss up I:

      Downloaded and extracted embedded-jboss-beta3.zip to a local folder
      Added hibernate-all.jar, jboss-embedded-all.jar, jboss-embedded.jar, thirdparty-all.jar to my classpath using the Eclipse Java Build Path project dialog
      Added everything in bootstrap to my classpath by creating a new source directory in Eclipse and copying everything from bootstrap into that new directory

      And to try it out I then:

      Created a new JUnit 4 test case where I just try to bootstrap the embedded container*.

      I get an exception when I try EJB3StandaloneBootstrap.boot(null); with the message java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.RuntimeException: Cannot find embedded-jboss-beans.xml.

      Stack trace for the exception:

      *Source code for my little test which raises the exception:
      package se.tpb.nds.archive.bookstock.business;
      import static org.junit.Assert.*;
      import org.jboss.ejb3.embedded.EJB3StandaloneBootstrap;
      import org.junit.After;
      import org.junit.AfterClass;
      import org.junit.Before;
      import org.junit.BeforeClass;
      import org.junit.Test;
      public class BookManagerEJBTest {
       public static void setUpBeforeClass() throws Exception {
       EJB3StandaloneBootstrap.boot(null); // EXCEPTION LINE //
       public static void tearDownAfterClass() throws Exception {

      Thank you for your time reading my post. I hope that you're able and willing to help me. Even giving me a hint would be immensely useful.

          I was also trying to get the new version of the EJ running.
          I had an older version running, everything was fine. Now I wanted to update to Beta3 and nothing runs anymore.

          Can anyone explain when to use "EJB3StandaloneBootstrap.boot(null)" and when to use "Boostrap.getInstance().bootstrap()"?????
          In the older version of the EJ I used the first one in my Unit Tests. Now in the Beta 3 version the tutorial says: use Bootstrap etc.

          I am little bit confused.

          Thanks for any help.

          Kind regards, Chris
