    ERROR [EntityContainer] Starting failed

    Upeka Niranjala Newbie

      Hi,
      I am trying to deploy an ejb jar to jboss-4.0.1sp1 with jdk 1.5, which was developed and successfully working in jboss 3.2.3 with jdk 1.4.

      Most of the entity and session beans were deployed correctly until recieving the following error.

      15:47:21,883 INFO [EjbModule] Deploying ExelOrderGXMLRequestQueue

      I have done the most of the obvious changes with Data source configs, standardjboss.xml, cluster-service.xml etc. I generate ejb-jar.xml and jbosscmp-jdbc.xml using xdoclet.

      Please point out some body where i should do the changes to avoid above error.

      thanks,

          Hi,
          Please be infromed that the above problem does not encounter with jboss-4.2.1.GA , but in jboss-4.0.1sp1 with jdk 1.5. So i could safely switch to the latest version. But there i got a warn as shown bellow.

          This caused the deployment to process halfway. This mentions about BeanMetaData and i'm not aware that where i should look for bean meta data.

          Please be kind enough somebody to give at least a small hint.

            Hi, we are running into the same problem after trying to deploy a MDB on JBoss 4.2.2 GA. Its working fine on JBoss 4.2.1 GA.

            java.lang.NullPointerException
             at org.jboss.metadata.BeanMetaData.getInvokerBindings(BeanMetaData.java:263)

            If the MDB is commented then the application doploys successfully including other SSB.
            If anyone has any hint to this issue please reply.

              You will have to post more details about your application (packaging) and the entire exception stacktrace and other appropriate logs.
