    Calling EJB from timer MBean

    jquest_j Newbie

      Hi all,

      We send it for second time.

      How can we call EJB from timer MBean.
      The MBean is working well, but by calling a EJB - stateless session bean
      we get Exception.

      We reader the docs ( JB 2.4.3) and can not find this problem.
      Any working examples?

      Many thanks in advance.

          I would help if you would provide us with the exception (Stack Trace).

          You can have several problems but I would guess that you either forgot to make the Home/Remote Interface available to you client (like for a web-client) or that you have a problem to look them up.

            Hi Andy,

            The exception is:

            [Default] java.lang.NoSuchMethodError
            [Default] at mypackage.services.AInternet$Listener.handleNotification(AInternet.java:71)
            [Default] at com.sun.management.jmx.MBeanServerNotificationListener.handleNotification(MBeanServerNotificationListener.java:48)
            [Default] at javax.management.NotificationBroadcasterSupport.sendNotification(NotificationBroadcasterSupport.java:142)
            [Default] at javax.management.timer.Timer.sendNotification(Timer.java:1119)

            I can find the interface.
            The exception occur by EJB method calling.

            Many thanks in advance.

              What is the content of the method AInternet$Listener.handleNotification() ?

                Hi ,

                I am not sure, but in my config (jboss.jcml) file I have:

                Listener.handleNotification() is intern in AInternet

                Many thanks.

                  Can you give me the source code of your listener.

                    Yes I can.

                    ref = jndiContext.lookup("MyEJBJNDI");

                    System.out.println( "S5");

                    LogHome = (MyEJBHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(ref,MyEJBHome.class);

                    System.out.println( "S7 :" + LogF);


                    System.out.println( "CALL OK");

                    } catch ( Exception e1){
                    System.out.println( " Exception is: " + e1.toString());

                    In callF() I can see the message S7, but can not start the EJB method. I can not see the message for "CALL OK".

                    If I comment LogF.MyCall(); I see the message "CALL OK".

                    Where is the problem?

                    Many thanks in advance.

                      In the catch() block just below the call "LogF.MyCall()" please add a "e1.printStackTrace()" and post this stack trace here.

                      Thanx - Andy

                        Hi Andy,

                        I try to print the stack.

                        I do not understand what is happen, but the call is working now.

                        I will test it in more complex example.
                        For the moment it is working.

                        Many thanks for you help.
