    Java Compiler (JSR199) in EJB3

    Marco Pehla Newbie

      Hello everybody,

      I need to compile generated Java source code inside of a enterprise application. I know that is possible to do these things in a ordinary JavaBean or backing bean of a JSF. But a much better solution would be to compile the Java code and return instances inside of a EJB3. I already migrated the JSR 199 compiler API of the Java 7 to libraries which can be used in Java 5 standalone applications. The JSR 199 Java Compiler API works pretty well and doesn't need access to the underlying file system. This is everything I need. But inside of a EJB3 deployed on JBoss 4.0.5 it doesn't work.

      JavaCompiler compiler = ToolProvider.getSystemJavaCompiler();

      Normally compiler get an instance of the class JavaCompiler. But the object compiler is null.

      Did anybody already implement a Java compiler as EJB3 ??? (Java version 5 would be enough.)
      Any ideas for another solutions are very welcome.

      Thank you in advance,
