    EJB Access Issue From MBean During Shutdown

    jfisherdev Apprentice

      I am currently migrating from JBoss AS 4.2.2 to WildFly 9.0.2.

      Some applications have MBeans that access EJB 2.x components in a stop() lifecycle method like this:

      public class AppService implements AppServiceMBean {
           public void stop() throws Exception {


      When shutting down a WildFly server, I am seeing this exception:


      org.jboss.as.ejb3.component.EJBComponentUnavailableException: WFLYEJB0421: Invocation cannot proceed as component is shutting down


      Is there a way to ensure that the EJB resources are available to the MBeans when shutting down? More specifically, can an MBean express a dependency on an EJB component? I know that in JBoss AS 4.2.2 this could be done via the jboss-service.xml descriptor by having the MBean that depends on the EJB declare a dependency on the MBean for the EJB. This is not supported in WildFly.


      Also, in cases where the EJB accesses a data source, this often coincides with a NameNotFoundException due to there no longer being a data source bound to the JNDI name used to lookup the data source. Is there a way for an MBean to express a dependency on a data source so that it is available during shutdown?


      Any information about this would be very much appreciated.
