Why the annotations in my web
application are not processed?
The most common cause for this is using an older version of web schema
instead of web-app_2_5.xsd. Please check your web.xml to see
whether it references web-app_2_5.xsd.
Annotations are only processed for JavaEE5 deployment descriptors.
Why it tells me there is no ejb in my
A valid ejb jar should contain at least one Enterprise Java Bean.
1. For pre-JavaEE5 ejb application, ejb-jar.xml is a required. And you
have to declare at least one ejb in the ejb-jar.xml.
2. In JavaEE5, you could either have an ejb-jar.xml declaring ejb(s) or
you need to have one of the ejb component level annotations: @Stateful,
@Stateless and @MessageDriven. Note: @Entity is not an ejb
component level annotation. The EJB30 entity beans are POJO instead of
Enterprise Java Beans.
How do I deploy an application
You could use JSR88
to deploy and undeploy an application programmatically.
Take a look at the jsr88 utility class we wrote for the unit test as an
