    using only Remote Interfaces

    zapa Newbie

      Hi there ,
      I was told in a recent thread that with JBoss I can code without writting Local interfaces as JBoss optimises them automatically in the background

      So I started writting only Remote Interfaces for my beans . The first problem I ran into was that , even with no mention of Local interfaces in the jboss.xml or ejb-jar.xml file , as the beans were beeing deployed , Jboss kept on complaining about the entity beans that were used in relations with other beans about not having LocalInterfaces . It's odd that it did not complain about beans with no relation .

      Here is an example . I have a CMP entity bean called UserEJB , wich simply holds the user and password for users accessing a system . At first this bean was alone , with no relation to any other bean . Jboss deployed it just fine . I then created another CMP bean LoggedUserEJB that would be in a relation with the UserEJB . Here is the relation in ejb-jar.xml :

      <ejb-relation>
       <ejb-relation-name>LoggedUser-User</ejb-relation-name>
       <ejb-relationship-role>
       <ejb-relationship-role-name>
       LoggedUser-has-one-User
       </ejb-relationship-role-name>
       <multiplicity>One</multiplicity>
       <relationship-role-source>
       <ejb-name>LoggedUserEJB</ejb-name>
       </relationship-role-source>
       <cmr-field>
       <cmr-field-name>user</cmr-field-name>
       </cmr-field>
       </ejb-relationship-role>
       <ejb-relationship-role>
       <ejb-relationship-role-name>
       User-belongs-to-LoggedUser
       </ejb-relationship-role-name>
       <multiplicity>One</multiplicity>
       <relationship-role-source>
       <ejb-name>UserEJB</ejb-name>
       </relationship-role-source>
       </ejb-relationship-role>
       </ejb-relation>
      

      As I was trying to redeploy the application , JBoss complained about UserEJB not having a LocalHome Interface .

      Can anyone come up with any ideeas for my problem ? This was not the only time i've had this problem , every single bean in the application complains at deployment time IF it is declared in a relation with another bean AND it does not have the Local stuff written completly ( even though , i never make any references to the local stuff , i've written it for a few beans just to be able to deploy them )
