    JBoss, Maven, DataNucleus - next steps

    El Noobie Newbie



      I am stuck on the next steps for JBoss AS7, Maven & DataNucleus.

      I posted https://community.jboss.org/message/831214 and got the basics working.


      The database is fully functional and I can do things using old-school PreparedStatement/ResultSet setups.


      However, I am stuck on the next steps.


      For my playtime-ear module I created:


      • src
        • main
          • resources
            • META-INF
              • jboss-deployment-structure.xml
              • ra.xml
              • jdopersistence.xml


      I build and deploy with no issues but am having issues with getting the suggested following code:



      PersistenceManagerFactory pmf = (PersistenceManagerFactory) context.lookup("java:/testMeDS"); 
      PersistenceManager pm = pmf.getPersistenceManager();


      There's a few questions I have now:


      1. What is the proper dependency I should have in my POM for this?
        1. Generic JDO (which seems preferable) or should I go with DataNucleus specifically?
        2. Currently using:  http://www.mvnrepository.com/artifact/javax.jdo/jdo-api/3.0.1
      2. When I try to access my new setup as listed in the code above, I'm not seeing it (NameNotFoundException: testMeDS) - why not?
      3. Are the 3 files I created actually necessary for my META-INF?  Am I missing any?
      4. Do I need to actually deal with the rar file as mentioned in Step 5?  If I'm deploying via Maven it doesn't seems like it should be necessary.


      I can't find too much doc online bout going through this with Maven that's for extreme n00bs like me.


      I attached my 3 META-INF files here.
