    Entity beans not autodeployed : javax.ejb.EJBException: java

    F B Newbie

      "all of a sudden" EJB3 CMP entity beans are failing with:

      "javax.ejb.EJBException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Unknown entity: __" when I call em.persist(MyCMPBean) from the session bean. Don't think it matters but... the Session Bean is a Stateless EJB as a webservice. All beans are done with annotations.

      persistence.xml is in the jarfile contained in the ear file and referenced by application.xml as a module. The classes are not explicitly listed however the PU does define "<exclude-unlisted-classes>false</exclude-unlisted-classes>"

      This worked fine until recently and I don't think anything changed (of course something obviously did and I cannot find it)

          Did you find a solution to this? I'm getting:

          11:57:19,156 INFO [Ejb3Configuration] found EJB3 Entity bean: com.ninem.rx.domain.site.Site


          Great.

          11:57:20,046 INFO [AnnotationBinder] Binding entity from annotated class: com.ninem.rx.domain.site.Site
          11:57:20,046 INFO [EntityBinder] Bind entity com.ninem.rx.domain.site.Site on table site


          Good.

          11:57:20,359 INFO [CollectionBinder] Mapping collection: com.ninem.rx.domain.site.Site.users -> user


          Expected.

          11:57:23,875 WARN [ServiceController] Problem starting service ninem:service=Admin
          javax.ejb.EJBException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Unknown entity: com.ninem.rx.domain.site.Site


          ...why?

          If it matters...I'm injecting my EntityManager via @Resource (It's in JNDI), and this exception occurs in the "start" method of a @Service Bean.

            In my case, the error was due to a change in the build process. a "persistence.xml" file found its way into the JAR containing one of my services, and therefor this service was injecting the wrong persistence unit, leading to the errors above.

              In our case, someone had deployed both the EAR and the JAR from inside the EAR.
