    When migrating from AS6.0 to AS7.2 multiple EJB contexts do not work any more

    Mihovil Santic Newbie

      Hi,

       

      We've had 4 EJBs made like this:

       

      ctx = new InitialContext();

      DiaryServiceLocal diaryService = (DiaryServiceLocal) ctx.lookup("LarisEAR/DiaryServiceBean/local");

       

      When saw in new server 7.1 that context creation is changed, we created four of these:

       

      @EJB(lookup="java:app/LarisEJB/DiaryServiceBean!com.wiset.laris.service.DiaryServiceLocal")

      private DiaryServiceLocal diaryServiceLocal;

       

      But when running app, only first EJB was resolved - all others where null, so application stopped when accessing other EJBs...

       

      We made workaround by putting all four EJBs into one:

       

      private LarisServiceLocal larisServiceLocal1;

       

      ... and accessing it from the session scope - first time we set it there and read it when needed:

       

        LarisServiceLocal lar = (LarisServiceLocal)getSessionScope().get("contextLaris");

        if (lar == null) {

         lar = larisServiceLocal1;

         getSessionScope().put("contextLaris", lar);

        }

        return lar;

      }

       

      Session bean is of type @Stateless and it's interface is @@Local

      ----

       

      Of course, we are not satisfied with this workaround - we want to have separate EJBs... Is it possible with JBoss 7.1? With AS6.0 it worked fine as described at the begining...

      Thanks

      Mihovil

          Hi,

           

          this is really strange as this should not give you any problems. Are this ejbs all in same ejb jar? or separate jars?

          i saw problems like this when there ware ejb-api's jar mistakenly in my application.

            Could you please give some more information on packaging of your application & ejb's? Also, what type of class is it where you are injecting beans (ejb/servlet/app-client/pojo)?

              Hi Prasad,

              We injecting beans into managed bean.

               

              Structure:

              ---META_INF
              -------MANIFEST.MF (empty)
              ---larisEjb.jar
              ---larisUI.war



              1. LarisEAR.ear\LarisUI.war\WEB-INF\lib\:

                We injecting beans into managed bean.

                And where that managed bean packaged in? I presume in larisModel.jar?

                  I am just curious is there any special reason you are using ear deployment for such simple deployment scenario?

                  as of EE6 you can have ejb3 jars inside war/web-inf/lib and it should work, as far as i see that would mean just to move larisModel.jar and larisEJB.jar to war/web-inf/lib and then deploy .war instead of ear.

                  I thing this would really simplfy your deployment and also some of your problems will go away...

                    We use this deployment directly from Eclipse and it worked well with AS6.0. Now we have finished project and wanting to make it work with AS7.1 (because of performance reasons). We do not see how the problems will go away by packaging it differently? The main problem is decreasing of connection pool...

                    thx anyway, Mihovil

                      ...

                       

                      This should work with no lookup at all specified (in both AS6 and AS7):

                       

                      {code:java}@EJB

                      private DiaryServiceLocal diaryServiceLocal;

                      {code}

                       

                      Later you say that you're injecting into a "managed" bean. Did you mean a JSF managed bean or a bean managed by something else?

                        Hi Stephen - this works actually what you said. We use JSF managed bean. Still only first EJB is interpreted ok by JBoss - other are null - so we enclosed all in one... we can live with this but cannot say it is right solution...

                          That really can't be right. Could you try going back to using multiple @EJB injections in that managed bean and post the exact code along with the entire exception stacktrace (which shows the NullPointerException).
