    EJB3 meta model and JDK 1.4

    Bill Burke Master

      EJB 3.0 relies heavily on Annotations as the way to define EJBs. The problem with this is that Annotation syntax is not available on JDK 1.4. So, what I will do is have a parallel JDK1.4 based meta model that we will apply using the JBoss AOP AnnotationCompiler and doclet tags.

      This has two advantages

      1) JDK 1.4 users can use EJB3
      2) We can develop EJB 3 with older IDEs.
