    Problem with minimal server

    Kim Fritzon Newbie

      Hi all!

      I'm using jboss-5.0.0.CR1, and with the "default" server everything works just fine. But when I'm trying to use the "minimal" server something goes wrong, (propobly because my lack of knowlage in jboss).
      In server.log I can see that my .jar file has been fully deployed, but it is not possible to connect to it. The message when I run the client is that the bean is not bound.

      Before I put my .jar file in the deploy-dir it is empty, is this correct or should there be some default files?

      Thanks in advance!

          Sounds like your bean (or client) relies on some service not present in "minimal".

          Some more specifics about the app (in the deployed jar file) and the client might help.

            Hi again!

            My bean looks like:

            package tmp;
            import javax.ejb.Stateless;
            public class CalculatorBean implements CalulatorRemote {
             public int add(int a, int b) {
             return a + b;

            And the client looks like:
            All needed stuff
            Properties props = new Properties();
            props.setProperty(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "");
            Context ic = new InitialContext(props);
            Object o = ic.lookup("CalculatorBean/remote");
            CalculatorRemote cr = (CalculatorRemote) o;
            System.out.println("sum: " + cr.add(2, 4));

            As you can see, I don't use any special services in the sever.

            The exception is:
            javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: CalculatorBean not bound...

            I start jboss from commandline: run.bat -c minimal -b

            From server.log I get:

            Is there an obvious reason why this does not work? What do I miss?

              The 'minimal' configuration does not support EJB deployment. The CalculatorBean class gets deployed (as a POJO), but the @Stateless annotation is ignored (requires an EJB deployer, which is not in 'minimal'). That in turn prevents the JNDI name from being registered.

              You should be using the 'default' configuration.
