    EJB Create on MDB

    Scorpio Newbie

      I am trying to deploy an MDB that implements my JCA's interface. Its keep complaining about EJB Create Method.

      14:45:43,131 WARN [verifier] EJB spec violation:
      Bean : EchoXMLMDB
      Method : public void ejbCreate() throws CreateException
      Section: 15.7.3
      Warning: The ejbCreate() method must define no application exceptions.

      I have no application exception defined in my ejbCreate method, it doesn't work if I have or don't have throws createException in the method clause. Any Idea ?, any help would be greatly appreciated.

          The ejbCreate method of a message driven bean is not allowed to throw the CreateException.

          The error message you have posted is because you have deployed a message driven bean that is declared as throwing the CreateException from the ejbCreate method.

          What message is displayed if you deploy your message driven bean when the CreateException is removed?

          If it is the same message have you double checked that the jar is being recreated correctly?

            I did change my method without throwing createException , still same result. Is there anything to do with Spec 2.1 ?

              Here is the code snippet

              package com.birch.mdb;

              import java.io.ByteArrayOutputStream;

              import javax.ejb.EJBException;
              import javax.ejb.MessageDrivenBean;
              import javax.ejb.MessageDrivenContext;
              import javax.jms.Message;
              import javax.jms.MessageListener;
              import javax.xml.transform.Transformer;
              import javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory;
              import javax.xml.transform.dom.DOMSource;
              import javax.xml.transform.stream.StreamResult;

              import org.jboss.logging.Logger;
              import org.w3c.dom.Document;

              import com.birch.adapters.file.XMLMessageListener;

              import javax.ejb.CreateException;

              public class EchoXMLMessageListener implements MessageDrivenBean,XMLMessageListener

              private static final Logger log = Logger.getLogger(EchoXMLMessageListener.class);

              private MessageDrivenContext ctx;

              private Transformer transformer;

              public EchoXMLMessageListener()


              public void setMessageDrivenContext(MessageDrivenContext ctx) throws EJBException
              this.ctx = ctx;


              public void ejbRemove() throws EJBException


              public void processXML(Document document) throws Exception
              TransformerFactory tf = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
              transformer = tf.newTransformer();
              } catch (Exception e)
              log.error("Exception Occured in Create",e);
              throw e;

              DOMSource source = new DOMSource(document);
              ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
              StreamResult result = new StreamResult(baos);
              transformer.transform(source, result);

              * Default create method
              public void ejbCreate()

                Post your ejbCreate() source code

                    Try out the following:

                     * @throws EJBException
                     public void ejbCreate() throws EJBException {

                      Still the same problem...

                        I think the probelm may be because of some jar file present in the classpath, which contains your old .class file of the MDB. Delete the .class file of the MDB from your jar file and restart the jboss. If you get the same exception, then there is a wrong .class file in your classpath for this MDB.
