    JBoss Migration: Failed to find ContainerDependencyMetaData

    Hushen Savani Novice

      Hi Community,

       

           I am migrating an OSS/BSS application from JBossAS-3.2.6 to JBossEAP-5.1.2. I am facing a problem here:

       

           I have two application ears, say XYZ.ear and ABC.ear. Both have number of session beans as:

       

      XYZ.ear

        |- FooSessionBean

       

      ABC.ear

        |- BarSessionBean

       

      Now, in XYZ.ear, FooSessionBean is referring to BarSessionBean using BarSessionBean's local interfaces.

       

      E.g.:

       

      /**
       *  
       *  @ejb.bean name="FooSessionBean"
       *          type="Stateless"
       *  view-type="both"
       *           jndi-name="FooSessionBean"
       *           local-jndi-name="ejb/FooSessionBeanLocal"
       *          transaction-type="Container"
       *
       * @ejb.transaction type="Required"
       * @ejb.util generate="physical"
       * @ejb.remote-facade
       * 
       @ejb.ejb-external-ref ref-name = "ejb/BarSessionBeanLocal" 
       * type = "Session" 
       * view-type = "local" 
       * home = "com.elitecore.ejb.bar.interfaces.IBarSessionBeanLocalHome" 
       * business = "com.elitecore.ejb.bar.interfaces.IBarSessionBeanLocal" 
       * link = "BarSessionBean" 
      
       *
       **/
      public class FooSessionBean implements javax.ejb.SessionBean {
                ....
                ....
      }
      

       

       

      And the BarSessionBean in ABC.ear is declared as:

       

       

      /**
       * Session facade for BarSessionBean
       * @ejb.bean name="BarSessionBean"
       *                               type="Stateless"
       *                               view-type="both"
       *           jndi-name="BarSessionBean"
       *           local-jndi-name="ejb/BarSessionBeanLocal"
       * @ejb.transaction type="NotSupported"
       * @ejb.util generate="physical"
       * @ejb.remote-facade
       * 
       *
       */ 
      public class BarSessionBean implements javax.ejb.SessionBean{
                ....
                ....
      } 
      

       

      Now, with JBossAS-3.2.6, it was working fine, but when using the same in JBossEAP-5.1.2, it throws following sort of error while deploying XYZ.ear:

        

      17:19:54,121 ERROR [AbstractKernelController] Error installing to PostClassLoader: name=vfszip:/opt/jboss-as-all-in-one/server/billingbss/deploy/billing/XYZ.ear/ state=ClassLoader mode=Manual requiredState=PostClassLoader
      org.jboss.deployers.spi.DeploymentException: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Failed to find ContainerDependencyMetaData for interface: com.elitecore.ejb.bar.interfaces.IBarSessionBeanLocal
                at org.jboss.deployment.MappedReferenceMetaDataResolverDeployer.internalDeploy(MappedReferenceMetaDataResolverDeployer.java:159)
                at org.jboss.deployers.spi.deployer.helpers.AbstractRealDeployer.deploy(AbstractRealDeployer.java:55)
                at org.jboss.deployers.plugins.deployers.DeployerWrapper.deploy(DeployerWrapper.java:179)
                at org.jboss.deployers.plugins.deployers.DeployersImpl.doDeploy(DeployersImpl.java:1454)
      

       

      I tried exploring on the same issue, the similar kind of issue is registered on redhat knowledge base as:

       

      https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/solutions/69530

       

      So, I tried using the same thing as:

       

      XYZ.ear

        |- FooSessionBean-ejb.jar

        |- BarSessionBean-client.jar

       

      ABC.ear

        |- BarSessionBean-ejb.jar

       

           I have placed BarSessionBean-client.jar in XYZ.ear. This client jar contains interfaces of BarSessionBean. Now, since IBarSessionBeanLocal interface is refered in FooSessionBean, I have included entry of BarSessionBean-client.jar in the MANIFEST.MF Class-path of FooSessionBean-ejb.jar (which contains FooSessionBean). But, it did not work either.

       

      Kindly suggest some pointers on the same.

       

      Thanks.
