    JBoss IDE and CMP

    Krzysztof Malinowski Newbie


      I'm looking for any simple example which show step by step some CMP/BMP entity beans, describing them using JBoss IDE.

      (The tutorial exposed on your site shows how to create session bean only)

      I'll be graceful for some help

          I am very new to EJBs. I have created a stateless session bean following the Fibo bean example. Now, I would like to create a Entity bean; does anyone know any tutorial like the Fibo bean? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

            Hi Guys Let me give some guide from my basic knowledge

            1. CREATE TABLE 'Author' (
            `id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment,
            `name` varchar(45) NOT NULL,
            PRIMARY KEY (`id`)

            2. Create a J2EE 1.4 project (BookStore) and add src folder and output folder bin (Like in the JBOSS-IDE tutorial)

            3. Right Click on the Project >Property > XDoclets Configuration and Enable XDoclet. Now Right Click anywhere in the window and Click Add Standard > Standard EJB (Give any name. say EJB). Also Right Click again and select Add Standadard > Standard Web (for exampe give name Web)

            Under EJB XDoclets keep only the following and remove other
            filesset (set dir=src, and includes=**/*.java)
            jboss (version=3.2 or 3)

            Under Web XDoclets keep only the following and remove the other
            filesset (set dir=src, and includes=**/*.java)
            jbosswebxml (version=3.2 or 3)

            4. Now Right Click on the projects New > Other > EJB Components >Entity Bean (Give name=Author,package=com.account,and select CMP 2.x and Remote options leave the other defualt)

            5. Replace the following in the EntityBean
            * @ejb.bean name="Author"
            * display-name="Name for Author"
            * description="Description for Author"
            * jndi-name="ejb/Author"
            * type="CMP"
            * cmp-version="2.x"
            * view-type="remote"
            * schema = "AuthorSchema"
            * @jboss.unknown-pk
            * class="com.account.AuthorPK"
            * auto-increment="true"
            * @jboss.entity-command
            * name="mysql-get-generated-keys"
            * class="org.jboss.ejb.plugins.cmp.jdbc.keygen.JDBCMySQLCreateCommand"

            * @ejb.persistence table-name = "Author"

            Note : I used mySQL Database
            May be you have to replace these line for Hypersonic
            * @jboss.entity-command
            * name="hsqldb-fetch-key"
            * class="org.jboss.ejb.plugins.cmp.jdbc.keygen.JDBCHsqldbCreateCommand"

            6. Now add the Virtual methods to the Entity Bean as follow

            * Getter for CMP Field id
            * @ejb.pk-field
            * @ejb.persistent-field
            * @ejb.interface-method view-type="remote"
            public abstract Integer getId();

            * Setter for CMP Field id
            * @ejb.interface-method view-type="remote"
            public abstract void setId(Integer value);

            * Getter for CMP Field name
            * @ejb.persistent-field
            * @ejb.interface-method view-type="remote"
            public abstract String getName();

            * Setter for CMP Field name
            * @ejb.interface-method view-type="remote"
            public abstract void setName(String value);

            (Note you can add these methods simple right Clicking the bean class >
            >Add CMP Field )

            7. Now you can run the XDoclets to see the result

            8. OK lets Add a Servlet Class and modify theXDoclets, init and doGet As Follow

            * Servlet Class
            * @web.servlet name="Test"
            * display-name="Name for Test"
            * description="Description for Test"
            * @web.servlet-mapping url-pattern="/Test"
            * @web.servlet-init-param name="A parameter"
            * value="A value"
            * @web.ejb-ref
            * name="ejb/Author"
            * type="Entity"
            * home="com.account.AuthorHome"
            * remote="com.account.Author"
            * description="Reference to the Fibo EJB"
            * @jboss.ejb-ref-jndi
            * ref-name="ejb/Author"
            * jndi-name="ejb/Author"
            public class Test ......

            private AuthorHome home;

            public void init(ServletConfig config) throws ServletException {
            try {
            Context context = new InitialContext();
            Object ref = context.lookup("java:comp/env/ejb/Author");
            home = (AuthorHome) PortableRemoteObject.narrow(ref, AuthorHome.class);
            } catch (Exception e) {
            throw new ServletException("Lookup of java:/comp/env/ failed" + e);
            protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse resp)
            throws ServletException,
            IOException {

            PrintWriter out=resp.getWriter();
            try {
            int myid=1;
            Integer parsed_myid=new Integer(myid);
            AuthorPK pk=new AuthorPK(parsed_myid);
            Author bean = home.findByPrimaryKey(pk);
            } catch (Exception e) {
            And now Run XDoclets

            10. Now Lets Add the application.xml file (JBOSS-IDE tutorails gives the steps for those)
            Right Click projects>New>Other>JBoss-IDE > Descriptors>EAR 1.4 Deployment Descriptor

            11. Now Lets Package the projects (Again JBOSS-IDE tutorails gives the steps for those)
            Right Click the project>property>Packaging Configuration
            Ok the package should looks like below
            /MyEntityProject/src/META-INF/ejb-jar.xml -> META-INF
            /MyEntityProject/src/META-INF/jboss.xml -> META-INF
            /MyEntityProject/src/META-INF/jbosscmp-jdbc.xml -> META-INF

            /MyEntityProject/src/WEB-INF/jboss-web.xml -> WEB-INF
            /MyEntityProject/src/WEB-INF/webb.xml -> WEB-INF

            /MyEntityProject/META-INF/application.xml -> META-INF
            Now Run the packaging ok we done it

            Note : I am also little new so please excuse me if any thing if I tild wrong. I tried little hard to find this autoincrement integer field primary key concept to use in JBOSS. But really thanks to the forums

              I'd try this right now.

              This is what I really wanted to know. ^^
