I have an EAR file.
It contains an EJB (helloWorldBean.jar)
and a Servlet in a WAR (helloWorldServlet.war)
I packaged them in an EAR file with the JAR and WAR
in the META-INF/lib directory. In the web.xml file of
the WAR file, I have an local-ejb-ref tag with an
ejb-link tag. I placed the value
in the link since the DTD says the format of this is the
path to the Bean JAR file relative to the EAR file and the BEAN jar file is in META-INF/lib.
This works and deploys in WebLogic 8.1
In JBoss, this does not work. I get a deployment error
and it says it cannot find ...<ear-file>/META-INF/lib/META-inf/lib/helloWorldBean.jar
If I change the ejb-link tag to either:
Thus, WebLogic uses ejb-link to find the Bean jar
relative to the EAR file.
It seems JBoss starts looking already in
META-INF/lib NOT the root of the EAR file as the DTD
Since, JBoss 3.2.2RC3 came out a week ago, which
is what I am using, and the forums mentioned that
a fix was made concerning the handling of the
<ejb-link> tag in web.xml, I figured that there might
be a bug and that JBoss does not start looking from
the EAR file root like WebLogic 8.1 and the DTD
Can you tell me what is going on?
The current solution, which I do not like, is to have
2 versions of web.xml. The one for WebLogic 8.1 has
the link and the JBoss3.2.2RC3 version has
helloWorldEJB or helloWorldBean.jar#helloWorldEJB
This is not good because we need to deploy our
beans in both JBoss and WebLogic.
Also, web.xml should not need to be different between
vendors. I would expect only vendor-specific WAR
file deployment descriptors to be different.
Also, I did try adding a jboss-web.xml file but that
did not make any difference at all, same error.
