    "No EJB receiver available for handling" error in EJB test against AS 7.1.1 with Arquillian

    Yong Hao Gao Master

      Hi guys,


      I have a simple Arquillian test that deploys a simple EJB to AS 7.1.1.Final and then invokes that EJB's only method. The following is the method that does the deployment:



         public static Archive getDeployment()



            final JavaArchive ejbJar = ShrinkWrap.create(JavaArchive.class, "ejb.jar");




            return ejbJar;



      The SendMessageBean is a simple EJB that implements SendMessageService's only method sendAndUpdate:




      public class SendMessageBean implements SendMessageService



         public void sendAndUpdate(final String text) throws Exception





      When the ejb has been deployed, the test look up the ejb and invoke the method, like:


               final Properties env = new Properties();

               env.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "org.jboss.naming.remote.client.InitialContextFactory");

               env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "remote://localhost:4447");

               env.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, "guest");

               env.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, "password");


               initialContext = new InitialContext(env);

               SendMessageService service = (SendMessageService)initialContext.lookup("java:ejb/SendMessageBean!org.hornetq.javaee.example.server.SendMessageService");


               service.sendAndUpdate("This is a text message");


      The JNDI lookup is successful. However when it calls sendAndUpdate("This is a text message") it gets an error like:


      runExample(org.hornetq.javaee.examples.MDBEJBTXRequiredRunnerTest): No EJB receiver available for handling [appName:,modulename:ejb,distinctname:] combination


      I have no idea why there is no ejb receiver. I'm asking for some advice on this.


      I give my test here for you to verify. To run the test you need first set JBOSS_HOME to AS7 installation and then run 'mvn test'.
