    roadmap query - xmbeans interceptors and ejb

    Trevor Squires Novice

      Hey,

      in the back of my mind I've been aware that the intention is for the jboss ejb endpoints to be MBeans. What I'm not 100% sure of is how far forward (in the call chain) will it stop looking like an ejb and start looking like an MBean.

      I guess the source of my question is the fact that when looking at the ejb invocation chain, the caller supplies the Method. However, in JMX something in the agent resolves the invoke() signature to a Method.

      Is the intention to simply tunnel through JMX (i.e. where arg 2 of mbeanserver.invoke() is actually "invoke") or are we expecting to truly expose ejbean methods as MBean operations (which appear in the MBeanInfo)?

      Whatever the intention I'm curious (juha) what the XMBean role is going to be.

      Thanks,
      Trev

          well, the latter would seem to be better suited for using the EJBs as services, using different JMX connectors to invoke them, and allowing things like JMX <-> WSDL adaptors to be used to access EJBs.

          mmmm.. I have a bad hangover, can you ask that again tomorrow? ]:)

          Or just post your own ideas, we can see how much we agree on. :p
