Hello, everyone
I am not sure if this is the right place for this topic but here it goes... Is there a specification (maybe it is not even a Servlet specification) that rules about how Servlets (client-side classes in general) are supposed to deal with EJB 3.0 annotations -- such as @EJB? I looked for something like that in the JCP and found nothing.

Servlets are not client-side classes.

Well, they are client from the EJB point of view... or not?

In that sense, yes.
The servlet app is the user interface to the EJBs.

I'm guessing that you're going to have issues unless you're running a servlet container under JDK1.5x. Not sure if the servlet classes themselves would need to be compiled under 1.5.

There are some similar issues going on with Tomcat right now.
Version 5.5 requires JDK1.5x and servlets compiled under 1.5 can use the new 1.5 features such as the new for loops but these things will not work in JSP scriptlets because the compiler that ships with Tomcat (Eclipse's JDT) isn't fully 1.5 compliant yet and doesn't understand them.

That confusion leads me to believe that this thread would do better in the EJB forum. A lot of people here (and in the JSP forum) are having a hard enough time understanding what happens on the webserver and what happens in the user's browser without throwing the 'EJB/Servlet Container' relationship into the mix.

Moving to the EJB forum.
