JBoss Migration: Failed to find ContainerDependencyMetaData

Hushen Savani Newbie

Hi Community,

 

     I am migrating an OSS/BSS application from JBossAS-3.2.6 to JBossEAP-5.1.2. I am facing a problem here:

 

     I have two application ears, say XYZ.ear and ABC.ear. Both have number of session beans as:

 

XYZ.ear

  |- FooSessionBean

 

ABC.ear

  |- BarSessionBean

 

Now, in XYZ.ear, FooSessionBean is referring to BarSessionBean using BarSessionBean's local interfaces.

 

E.g.:

 

/**
 *  
 *  @ejb.bean name="FooSessionBean"
 *          type="Stateless"
 *  view-type="both"
 *           jndi-name="FooSessionBean"
 *           local-jndi-name="ejb/FooSessionBeanLocal"
 *          transaction-type="Container"
 *
 * @ejb.transaction type="Required"
 * @ejb.util generate="physical"
 * @ejb.remote-facade
 * 
 @ejb.ejb-external-ref ref-name = "ejb/BarSessionBeanLocal" 
 * type = "Session" 
 * view-type = "local" 
 * home = "com.elitecore.ejb.bar.interfaces.IBarSessionBeanLocalHome" 
 * business = "com.elitecore.ejb.bar.interfaces.IBarSessionBeanLocal" 
 * link = "BarSessionBean" 

 *
 **/
public class FooSessionBean implements javax.ejb.SessionBean {
          ....
          ....
}

 

 

And the BarSessionBean in ABC.ear is declared as:

 

 

/**
 * Session facade for BarSessionBean
 * @ejb.bean name="BarSessionBean"
 *                               type="Stateless"
 *                               view-type="both"
 *           jndi-name="BarSessionBean"
 *           local-jndi-name="ejb/BarSessionBeanLocal"
 * @ejb.transaction type="NotSupported"
 * @ejb.util generate="physical"
 * @ejb.remote-facade
 * 
 *
 */ 
public class BarSessionBean implements javax.ejb.SessionBean{
          ....
          ....
} 

 

Now, with JBossAS-3.2.6, it was working fine, but when using the same in JBossEAP-5.1.2, it throws following sort of error while deploying XYZ.ear:

  

17:19:54,121 ERROR [AbstractKernelController] Error installing to PostClassLoader: name=vfszip:/opt/jboss-as-all-in-one/server/billingbss/deploy/billing/XYZ.ear/ state=ClassLoader mode=Manual requiredState=PostClassLoader

          at org.jboss.deployers.plugins.deployers.DeployersImpl.doDeploy(DeployersImpl.java:1454)

 

I tried exploring on the same issue, the similar kind of issue is registered on redhat knowledge base as:

 

https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/solutions/69530

 

So, I tried using the same thing as:

 

XYZ.ear

  |- FooSessionBean-ejb.jar

  |- BarSessionBean-client.jar

 

ABC.ear

  |- BarSessionBean-ejb.jar

 

     I have placed BarSessionBean-client.jar in XYZ.ear. This client jar contains interfaces of BarSessionBean. Now, since IBarSessionBeanLocal interface is refered in FooSessionBean, I have included entry of BarSessionBean-client.jar in the MANIFEST.MF Class-path of FooSessionBean-ejb.jar (which contains FooSessionBean). But, it did not work either.

 

Kindly suggest some pointers on the same.

 

Thanks.
