FDS and EJB3


Level 1
Hello Folks,

I have a couple of issues I am trying to resolve relating to
FDS and EJB3.

First, a question: Is it possible to deploy EJB3 session
beans/JPA entity beans inside the flex.war into a JBoss
implentation? Currently I am having to deploy two .jars (one into
JBoss /deploy and the other into the flex.war/WEB-INF/lib) in order
for FDS or RO communication to talk to EJB. This is resulting in a
facade (on the flex side) using a remote interface request to the
session beans deployed to JBoss. It would be much better if I could
simply access the EJBs directly from inside of a single deployment
(using the local interface) inside of the flex.war.

Second: this is related to the first... as the EJB container
and the flex.war web app are separated is it possible to get a
reference to the MessageBroker from the EJB container? This may
just be my inexperience with J2EE showing, but I get a null
reference to the MessageBroker from inside of an EJB component. For
instance when an EJB timer service goes off I would like to push a
FDS message to a flex client.

Any help is appreciated!

It's been a long time since I did this, but I'll give this a

I've never heard of deployong an EJB inside of a WAR. You
might try making an EAR that has both the Flex WAR and the EJB's
JAR files.

The only other thing I can think of is to try using an
ejb-ref in the flex WAR's web.xml. Something like:


<description>Define reference for simple stateless
session bean</description>






although you may need to make corresponding specifications on
the JBoss side. Also, this is for a remote EJB, you'd use an
ejb-local-ref instead of an ejb-ref.
