It sounds like you are also declaring a data source in a *-ds.xml file. Try this. Bring up JBoss AS without anything deployed. Once it is running (wait for the "started in xxx seconds" message), deploy the *-ds.xml file. If that is nor successful, post the console log entries after "started in" entry.
If that is successful, deploy your EAR files one at a time, each time waiting for the deployment to complete. The first exception stack trace you hit, post the console log entries that correspond to the deployment of that EAR file, including the stack trace.
thanks for your answer. I found out that I have problems with the workmanager. In WebSphere you must define a workmanager in the administration console. In JBoss I found the file jca-jboss-beans.xml
but I found nothing in the web about it. I am new to the "annotation thing". Must I define annotations to the java code for JBoss? Can someone give me an example or a documentation link?
What is a "workmanager"? There is no such term in JBoss AS (the concept might be there, but under a different name - it is always a good idea to define terms specific to other app servers) I am not sure why you want to modify jca-jboss-beans, other than the fact that it contains the text "workmanager". I doubt that this is the same concept as the "workmanager" in WebSphere.
You do not need annotations when using EJB 2.x.
Please go back to what I posted in my previous response, perform the tasks I asked, and post the results that I asked for.
And it was nice of you to hint that you are using JBoss AS 5.0.
Yes, we try JBoss AS 5 at the moment and we migrate from WebSphere 6.1.
We use a WorkManager in WebSphere to do background work.
<resource-ref> <res-ref-name>wm/MainWorkManager</res-ref-name> <res-type>javax.resource.spi.work.WorkManager</res-type> <res-auth>Container</res-auth> <res-sharing-scope>Shareable</res-sharing-scope> </resource-ref>
We can access the WorkManager in the JAVA code via a JNDI lookup. But with JBoss this seems to be not possible. Anyway, we need a way to
implement background working in JBoss. I found this:
but I think it is only for JBoss AS 4.
Error Message when I try to deploy a project with a WorkManager:

Solved: It was not an exception caused by the workmanager but an error in a jboss.xml. In the jboss.xml was a resource reference defined but not in the ejb-jar.xml.
