I am new here and right now facing the problem of non-existing javax.ejb.*;
I am using the HF to study the ejb. On the Chapter 1 everything went fine including compiling bean, the two interface classes, which means that the classpath(C:\Sun\J2EE\lib\j2ee.jar) is set correctly, the javax.ejb found. But...the AdviceClient fails the compilation with the "package javax.ejb does not exist" error. Can someone Help???!!!

If classpath doesnt help then unzip the contents of j2ee.jar in the classes folder of the App Server.

I had this problem as well and found a workaround (I mentioned it in a prior thread).

When compiling, include:

or whatever version you're using. If you're following along with the book, I assume you're using 1.3.1.

so basically the line would read:

I don't know if there is a better solution, but this worked for me.
