Weblogic has weblogic-ejb-jar.xml and weblogic-ejb-rdbms-jar.xml, weblogic specific descriptor files. What are the equivalent files in the Websphere ?

I think the counterparts of those files are:

- ibm-ejb-jar-bnd.xmi
- ibm-ejb-jar-ext.xmi

They are also located on the META-INF folder of the EJB jar file.

Hope that helps.

The equivalent of the weblogic-ejb-rdbms-jar.xml is map.mapxmi which defines the CMP mapping.

ibm-ejb-jar-bnd.xmi is a binding file which serves the specific purpose of mapping references and to the real JNDI elements and defining JNDI names for EJB, etc... WebSphere gives you the opportunity to override settings in this file at aplication installation time

ibm-ejb-jar.ext.xmi is for any setting that extends the J2EE spec for example defining access intent on an EJB.

You will find detailed info on these files in my book. The link in my signature can take you there.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
