Im new to this, and Ive met this annoying thing I just cant explain!
Try to deploy these beans: www.cs.uit.no/~kenneths/jboss/
They contains the same files, just jared on different locations om my hd. So I also wonder why the size is slightly different. HelloWorld wont let itself be deployed, but HelloWorld2 does just fine. Its very annoying because I want to understand why! Only nr.2 gets the "[EjbModule] Creating" message and gets bound on the nameserver. Anyone knows?
Tried your jars and for me it was HelloWorld.jar that deployed. After having unjared them and jared them again they both worked fine. Something must have went wrong when you jared them. I have no explanation...
