not as far as I can think of
what is the error you're having more specifically?
when you're trying to code outside JBoss, is it still within an MBean server?
Thanks for the reply...
There isn't any specific error. I think the MBean is operating correctly. From what I see, this is the process my MBean should follow:
1) Load shared Library
There are calls in the bean that do the following:
2) Make a JNI Call to a Baan function called start_ci()
'start_ci()' will create a special shell with the Baan server. From what I see, it spawns a new process and communicate back with its parent through a pipe. This process is the communications link to the Baan server.
3) Make a JNI Call to make a query for the Baan server. Using the pipe from 2, the query is run and a result is returned.
This is the problem: When start_ci() runs, it creates the process and the communication link, but the communication link loses scope for part 3. I have tried running these processes as seperate JNI calls and as a single JNI call. I still get the same result.
I guess I need to know what I am doing wrong to lose scope..or is external process out of scope completely because it is outside the container?
Thanks for your help in advance.
