    ejb-jar.xml for ejb3.1

    Roman Boris Newbie


      I'm using arquillian version 1.0.0.CR7 and have a next problem:


      for using EJB3.1 create deployment with ejb-jar.xml in jar like next:

      .addAsManifestResource("META-INF/ejb-jar.xml", ArchivePaths.create("ejb-jar.xml"))


      if don't have real ejb-jar.xml file arqullian generates it but! for ejb version 2.1.

      Question: how to force arqullian to use ejb v 3.1?


      Tried to use specific protocol

      @OverProtocol("EJB 3.1")


      but got exception: "DeploymentScenario contains protocols not maching any defined Protocol in the registry. EJB 3.1"


      With ejb-jar.xml for v3.1 I've failed to deploy


      Thanks for help

          What do you mean Arquillian generates a 2.1 ejb-jar xml ?

            for my jar I'm adding ejb-jar.xml next way:


            .addAsManifestResource("META-INF/ejb-jar.xml", ArchivePaths.create("ejb-jar.xml"))


            but there is no real ejb-jar.xml file in META-INF of my project

            After deployment (it was successful) in _DEFAULT___DEFAULT__AppTest.ear in my jar's META-INF folder I have ejb-jar.xml:


            <ejb-jar xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee" version="2.1" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/ejb-jar_2_1.xsd">

              <display-name>MEJB JAR</display-name>

              Added (attachment) test application to find out problem faster.


              mvn clean install

              and ejb-jar.xml in App-ejb.jar will appear


              My root problem: successfully deploy arquillian with ejb-jar.xml for EJB3.1 or to generate it on the fly. If I add blank ejb-jar.xml fro EJB3.1 (only <display-name>) - deploy is failed.


              p.s.: sorry if my explanations were not clear

                Aa, I see..


                when you do addAsManifestResource("META-INF/ejb-jar.xml", ....) ShrinkWrap will look for a META-INF/ejb-jar.xml on ClassPath. You don't have one in your project, but org.glassfish.extras:glassfish-embedded-all has one, which is the one you see in your deployment.


                For EJB 3.1 you don't need a ejb-jar.xml, so simply don't add it. If you do have a ejb-jar.xml for your ejb that you want to use, you should be able to workaround this by not adding it as a Classpath Resource, but as a File resource, or as a String (if you create it)


                addAsManifestResource(new File("src/main/resources/my-ejb.jar.xml"), "ejb-jar.xml")


                addAsManifestResource(new StringAsset("<xml .............>"), "ejb-jar.xml")

                  Thank for reply!

                  But my root problem is not fixed:

                  gets exception when I'm tring to deploy with next ejb-jar.xml file:


                  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
                  <ejb-jar xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee"
                           xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/ejb-jar_3_1.xsd"



                  SEVERE: Exception while loading the app : WELD-001408 Unsatisfied dependencies for type ...


                  * Maybe problem is with alternative stateless beans? It is successfully deployed with "generated" (from glassfish-embedded-all.jar) ejb-jar.xml and failed to deploy with my ejb-jar for ejb3.1

                  * Without ejb-jar.xml I can't deploy either.

                  * Tried to deploy with ejb-jar for v3.1 with GlassFish AS: success


                  Any ideas? Thanks for help!

                    Nobody can help with this problem? Or maybe someone has working example for: cdi alternatives + ejb3.1 + arquillian.
