HELP: Jndi names disappear when deploying

Hi guys. I've got a problem. When I use websphere studio 5.1 to development our financial application on, everything works fine. When I look at the ejb-jar.xml file, the jndi name always appears in the input box. When I generate the .EAR file, and import it into the websphere application server, some, but not all of the jndi names are gone. I that have to manually capture them, before I can start the application. I don't think the bean is missing, for after I captured the JNDI name, and I run the application, it does lookup the bean and communication between the respective components work.
Could anybody please help, for this really wastes my time.
Thanx

OK, this is interesting. The JNDI names are stored in the file ibm-ejb-bnd-ext.xmi inside your EJB-JAR file. You're telling me that when you export your EAR file that this file changes? If so that's a bug.
Here's what you need to do. Copy the contents of this file (which you can see if you move to the "Resource" perspective) into another document outside of WAS. Then export your EAR, and use Winzip or something else to explode it and then look at the same file inside the EJB-JAR file and copy its contents out again. If they really are different, then you need to send your EAR and the two file versions off to IBM and open a PMR.
BTW, go ahead and post the differences you see here, too. I'd like to see this for my own curiosity.

What is the typical problems people get with this binding file? We are about 5 people developing on this application, and we also use CVS. Could there be any integration errors with CVS?

Martin,
I just checked the two files out you posted and they're identical. I think you may have pasted in one of the files wrong. Any chance you could email me the files to the address on my web site?
Also, yes there are problems that can happen with CVS and this file. However, CVS should make you do a compare on this file when you merge your local copies back into the trunk. If you ignore the changes they would obviously be lost.

Space seems cool in the movies, but once you get out there, it is super boring. Now for a fascinating tiny ad:
