    problem with setEntityContext in BMP EJB

    Mark Johnson Newbie

      I have a simple bean managed entity bean. It has a single ejbFindByPrimaryKey method which takes a String as the pk.

      Anyway, I put a println statement in the setEntityContext method to see what was being passed in there, and it turns out that the parameter to that method is always 'null'

      In what cases will the EntityContext object passed into that method be null?

      I have another bean that does not exhibit this behavior. The only difference I can think of is that one of them gets called from within another EJB, while one gets called from within a JSP. (The one in the JSP is the one that passes null)

      Thanks for any heads up as to what is really going on.

          I also have a null EntityContext but the bean is Container managed and is called from a session bean.

          My enviroment is: W2K, JBoss-3.0.4_Tomcat-4.1.12, XDoclet 1.2, Ant 1.5.

          I am getting WARNings in out.txt re jars ignored because they could not be opened, and improper ebj naming.

          I would appreciate any clues or direction offered!

          Thanks,
          Rick

            Similar problems here.

            I think something is very wrong about JBoss's current state-of-affairs with BMP-EJB's (JBoss 3.0.4)

            The exact same BMP-EJB's (with the exact same DD's) worked as expected with J2EE SDK 1.3.1 and 14. beta !

            Would someone of the JBoss-Team please clarify this very important issue....?

              Can you post the stack trace or a simple example.

              I don't see how you can get null for setEntityContext?

                      Hi,

                      I meant can you post the stacktrace when
                      setEntityContext is invoked with null

                      public void setEntityContext(EntityContext ctx)
                      {
                      if (ctx == null)
                      throw new NullPointerException("null context");
                      this.ctx = ctx;
                      }

                      Regards,
                      Adrian

                        Adrian,

                        Thank-you very much!

                        Your instructions pointed out that I had somehow managed to rename my "setEntityContext" method to "setContext". Once renamed correctly it worked fine.

                        Thanks again,
                        Rick
