    EJB annotations ignored if classes are packaged as JBOSS modules

    Tihomir Meščić Newbie

      Hi everyone,


      I have an EJB that writes something to the DB and I have a custom checked exception that is marked as @javax.ejb.ApplicationException(rollback=true), which means that when the exception is thrown, transaction should be rollbacked.


      public class MyException extends Exception {


      This exception is packaged in a separate JAR.


      When this JAR is included in the lib/ folder of the EAR with my EJB, everything works as expected (when the EJB throws MyException, the transaction is rollbacked).

      However, when this JAR is deployed as a JBOSS module (so, in ${jboss}/modules/... folder), and the EAR declares a dependency on this module (MANIFEST.MF -> Dependencies: ....) , then the transaction is NOT rollbacked.


      Why is this happening?


      One workaround (that I don't really like) is to specify that this is an application exception in the jboss-ejb3.xml (then, the transaction will be rollbacked).
