I had this same problem, and failed to resolve it. I changed my packaging to not use an EAR.
Are EJB's deployed in an EAR supposed to be available from outside of the EAR, or are they only available to web apps deployed in the same EAR? Are they deployed in a different namespace or something? Or does JBoss not correctly deploy EJB's packaged in an EAR? Or are we doing something wrong? If so, what might it be?
I, too, would like an answer on this, but there does not appear to be any documentation on it (that I can find).
Yes EJBs deployed in an EAR are supposed to be accessible from the outside.
I am not sure what the cause of the problem is, are you checking JNDI to make sure that the components were deployed correctly?
Is your application.xml valid and in the correct location.
Are you sure that there are no errors displayed in the console.
The recent versions of JBoss work fine so it is not a JBoss problem.
What is the JNDI Name on the EJB? You mentioned only the ejb-jar.xml , can you post the jndi-name from jboss.xml or from teh console. Make sure that that is the one you are referencing from ur client
I got this to work, but I have no idea what is different from what I did before (well, actually I know several things are different, but I'm not sure which one if any was the problem).
I finally got it to work. It was nothing to do wit JNDI name or jboss.xml. In fact jboss.xml is not required. The ejb-name in ejb-jar.xml is enough to be referenced by a client.
The problem was that the ear wasnt deployed at all. There was some problem with the soure code in remote interface. The method signature did not throw RemoteException.
But the surprising thing was jBoss did not complain when I deployed it. It did not throw any errors or messages or exception. This is what misled me into going to debug somewhere else.
I would have expected JBOSS to throw some message to the least saying the ear was not deployed.
I'm new to jboss and I have to deploy a J2EE application.
The WebModule, the JavaModule and the DataSource (Oracle) are working fine, but not the EJBModule
I have this error :
javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: ejb not bound
I red about jboss.xml but I dunno what do I have to put in it or if it's necessary to write it or not.
note that from the jmx-xonsole, I have the following :
JMX MBean Operation Result
java:comp namespace of the OPCAISSE bean:
+- env (class: org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext)
These two line are displayed for each of my Java beans, so the EJB Module was correctly deployed I guess
Can someone help me with this please ? ...
Thx in advance
