    Deployment problem/question JBoss 5.1 migration

    Lars Vonk Newbie

      Hi,

      We are migrating from 4.2.3 to 5.1.0 (JDK 6). We have migrated some applications but I have a question about a problem we faced when migrating an ear file.

      After deploying I saw the following error in the log

      DEPLOYMENTS MISSING DEPENDENCIES:
       Deployment "jboss.j2ee:ear=billing.ear,jar=billing-services-2.0-SNAPSHOT.jar,name=BillingLogicBean,service=EJB3_endpoint" is missing the following dependencies:
       Dependency "jboss.j2ee:ear=billing.ear,jar=billing-services-2.0-SNAPSHOT.jar,name=BillingLogicBean,service=EJB3" (should be in state "Configured", but is actually in state "**ERROR**")
      
      DEPLOYMENTS IN ERROR:
       Deployment "jboss.j2ee:ear=billing.ear,jar=billing-services-2.0-SNAPSHOT.jar,name=BillingLogicBean,service=EJB3" is in error due to the following reason(s): java.lang.AssertionError: container is null, **ERROR**
      
      


      This error has to do with The BillingLogicBean that depends on another EJB called RipePrintingService. For some reason we are referring to it as Local ejb although it is deployed as seperate jar on the same machine. I did not know this was possible but apparently it is.

      Before migration we referred to it as follows (and that worked):

      @Stateless
      public class BillingLogicBean implements BillingLogic {
       @EJB
       private RipePrintingService printingService;
      
       // rest omitted
      }
      




      Further up the logfile the following stacktrace was printed (we have assertions put on)

      And a little further up I noticed a logging statement referring to https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/EJBTHREE-1289


      Complete log statement

      Now we solved it by adding the "mappedName" property to the @EJB annotation on the RipePrintingService property in the BillingLogicBean:

       @EJB(mappedName="RipePrintingServiceBean/local")
       private RipePrintingService printingService;
      


      The thing is I do not understand why I need to do this in JBoss 5.1.0, it was working in 4.2.3 without the mappedName property.

      Thanks in advance.
