I have been asked to port an EJB 1.1 app to JBoss 4.0.2. As an intermediate step, I ported to JBoss 3.2.7 and it seemed to more or less work. However, on 4.0.2 the first look-up of a Home interface fails.
Does 4.0.2 support EJB 1.1, or am I wasting my time?
Yes, 4.0.2 supports ejb1.1. The legacy 1.1 cmp engine is not support in 1.1 so you need to migrate jaws.xml to the newer jbosscmp-jdbc.xml descriptors.
