I'm new at JBoss but here's what I think I figured out:
The jaws.xml file is used for CMP beans 1.x. If they're CMP 2.x, then use jbosscmp-jdbc.xml. At least that's what I believe.
Tanx a lot :)
I think I must have mixed up some of my documentation. After having a look at the newest JBoss 3.0 CMP-doc it seems you are right ... I cant wait to get my hands on the machine tomorrow ... you certainly saved my day :)
