    Attempt to get  lock ref with a null object

    vamsi charan sarma Newbie

      Hi
      I have created a simple cmp , with 3 fields empId, empFirstname,empLastName.
      Here empId is primary key with autoincrement.
      When i enter Emp first name, last name using the create method my cmp is working fine and i am able to create new row with autoincrement.
      When i call setEmpFirstName() or serEmpLastName() methods from my client geeting an error given below

      java.rmi.ServerException: RemoteException occurred in server thread; nested exception is:
      [java] java.rmi.ServerException: RuntimeException; nested exception is:

              You must use the unknow-pk feature to handle auto generated keys

              In ejb-jar.xml:
              1) declare the primary key class of type java.lang.Object
              2 ) declare the return type of ejbCreate of java.lang.Object

              in jbosscmp-jdbc.xml :
              3 ) declare the unknow-pk and add an entity command as follows in :

              <unknown-pk>
               <unknown-pk-class>java.lang.Integer</unknown-pk-class>
               <field-name>id</field-name>
               <column-name>emp_id</column-name>
               <jdbc-type>INTEGER</jdbc-type>
               <sql-type>INTEGER</sql-type>
               <auto-increment/>
              </unknown-pk>
              <entity-command name="mysql-get-generated-keys">
              

              I hope this helps you

                HI sesques
                As per your suggestions
                1) I declared the primary key class of type java.lang.Object
                2 ) I declared the return type of ejbCreate of java.lang.Object given bellow

                public java.lang.Object ejbCreate( java.lang.String empFirstName ) throws javax.ejb.CreateException {

                //setId(id);
                this. setEmpFirstName(empFirstName);
                // setEmpLastName(empLastName);
                return null;
                }

                3 declared the unknow-pk and added an entity command
                (I added these changes simply at the bottom of jbosscmp-jdbc.xml , with out removing the existing cmp-field declarations for emp_ id

                <cmp-field>
                <field-name>id</field-name>
                <column-name>emp_id</column-name>
                <jdbc-type>INTEGER</jdbc-type>
                <sql-type>INTEGER</sql-type>
                <auto-increment></auto-increment></cmp-field>

                )

                After these changes , i tried to deploy but deployment was unsuccessful and i got following error

                waring:The type of the primkey-field must match the primary key class.

                Then i made primary key class of type java.lang.Integer
                After this change deployment was successful, but when i run my
                client I got bellow error
                (client code

                  Keep the java.lang.Object type for primary kay class, but remove the
                  <primkey-field>id</primkey-field> declaration.
                  As the primary key is declared as unknown, you cannot set a CMP field as primary key.
                  Normally, when doing that, no CMP field should be declared for the primary key. But you can anyway, but do not declare the CMP field as primary key.
                  To find your bean, you must use also the findByPrimaryKey method.

                  You can have a look to the:

                    Hi sesques, thanks for replying twise,

                    in ejb-jar.xml

                    I removed the cmp field declarion for id, <primkey-field>id</primkey-field> declaration
                    and i made primary kay class of type ava.lang.Object

                      sesques Novice

                      You have

                      <create-table>true</create-table>
                      

                      I don't use this feature myself. After deployment, is the table created in the database ? and the emp_id column set to auto-increment ?

                      If not, the container must generate the key and you must use an entity command name of pk-sql or key-generator. Look at standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml in the conf directory

                        HI sesques
                        Using <create-table>true</create-table> feature ,container created table for me with emp_id auto-incremented.

                        I have changed <entity-command name ="default"> to name="mysql-get-generated-keys"> in the standardjbosscmp-jdbx.xml

                        After deployment ,when i run my client i still got below error
                        ] java.rmi.ServerException: RemoteException occurred in server thread; nested exception is:
                        [java] java.rmi.ServerError: Unexpected Error; nested exception is:
                        [java] java.lang.AbstractMethodError: org.gjt.mm.mysql.jdbc2.Connection.prepareStatement(Ljava/lang/String;I)Ljava/sql/PreparedStatement;

                        I have solved my problem using <auto-increment/>, not going for <unknown-pk>
                        I do not know whether i am correct or not .
                        Thanks for ur great help , regarding this topic i got some subject from ypu.

                          sesques Novice

                          I ask myself many questions about unknow-pk tag. My application was running on Weblogic before, and I had a hell of a time with database auto-incremented keys (I use MS SQL2000 adn ORACLE and I cannot tell JBoss to create the databases because the databases are existing and quite voluminous).
                          This tag (unknow-pk) solve my problem, but it seems it is not the case for other people is this forum, especially with MySQL anyway.
                          You are lucky all of you using a create-table to true, and not worrying about unknow-pk's. But enterprise applications cannot work with a database created from scratch, but rather deal with data migration between old mainframes and new internet architectures and so on...

                          So, I cannot tell you if you are correct or not. You are not the only one not using an unknow-pk tag with database generated key. I don't know the rule for that (Is it specific to MySQL or specific that the table is created by JBoss or not).
                          It could be usefull if a JBoss expert can explain this mystery !

                          The main goal is that our applications are running, isn'it ?
