    JBoss, SQL Server, EJB problem

    cst97025 Newbie

      I'm using SQL Server 2000, JBoss 3.2.1, and the microsoft jdbc driver.
      On my development machine (Win XP pro) the app works fine.
      On the server (Win server 2003 small bus edition) I get exceptions deploying the EJBs (see stack trace below).

      The database port (1433) is open and I've confirmed sql server is listening on it. Sql server log does not show any connection attempts (failed or successful). I've double-checked database name, user, password, jndi name. The user can log into the database successfully via MS Query Analyzer.
      Any ideas?

      My mssql-ds.xml file looks like this:

      <local-tx-datasource>
       <jndi-name>Marketing</jndi-name>
      <connection-url>jdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://localhost:1433;DatabaseName=marketing</connection-url>
      <driver-class>com.microsoft.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver</driver-class>
       <user-name>myUserName</user-name>
       <password>myPassword</password>
      </local-tx-datasource>


      From the system.log:

          Maybe a naive question ? Are you sure you put your driver jars into the lib directory...

          Seems like jboss is unable to find some class... As the message 'Could not load class' comes from a wrapping of a "catch (ClassNotFoundException)" into JDBCEntityCommandMetadata.


          At least your xml config looks just fine...

            I did double-check the driver jars - they are there.

            Here's some more info:
            I deployed the app successfully using the same db backup & ear file as on my dev box.
            I double checked that all the server jars in \lib & server\default\lib are the same as the jars on our working dev boxes.
            I added a new servlet to the ear that retrieved a db connection (using the same JNDI name & datasource that our ejbs use),
            queried the db (using plain jdbc) and printed out the result.
            This worked fine so this proves our database/datasource/jdbc drivers are setup properly.

            On startup, our app retrieves a db record using a local cmp, called from a remote session bean.
            The error occurs when the cmp is called so we suspect the error is related to a descriptor or the entity container.

              I figured out the problem.

              I wasn't reading the stack trace closely enough at first.

              The problem was that /server/default/conf/standardjbosscmp-jdbc.xml was missing
              the "mssql-get-generated-keys" entity-command:

              <entity-command name="mssql-get-generated-keys"
              class="org.jboss.ejb.plugins.cmp.jdbc.mssql.JDBCMsSQLCreateCommand"/>


              It's needed to retrieve PKs that are generated by sql server's IDENTITY columns when new records are created and my EJBs require it.
