Unable to load the EJB module. DeploymentContext does not contain any EJB.

I'm writing an enterprise application to familiarize myself with Glassfish 3.1.2 and EJB 3.1. I've created several local, stateless beans, and injected one into a JSF managed bean using the @EJB annotation. The ejb and web module compile fine, but when I launch the application with Glassfish I get the following startup error and the application does not deploy. I don't understand what it means, can someone ellaborate? thanks!

If you use EJB component annotations to define the EJB, and an ejb or web deployment descriptor is also used, please make sure that the deployment descriptor references a Java EE 5 or higher version schema, and that the metadata-complete attribute is not set to true, so the component annotations can be processed as expected

Maybe you have the old version of web.xml? Please try:



Java EE5 does not allow to have EJBs defined within WAR.
