Hi Group,

I am taking my first steps in creating EJBs with Websphere App Server Version 6 on Windows). I followed an EJB example on the book "An introduction to IBM rational Developer - J.Fung" and when I start the server, the following 2 exceptions is thrown on the console.

If somebody could help me with clearing up the following exception, that would be great. Also, I'd appreciate any help to light up the way.

Thanks,
Aravind

I forgot to add something important. I am using Rational Eclipse to create the EJB and also using the inbuilt WebSphere server.

It clearly saying that it is not finding the ejb-jar.xml (deployment descriptor for the EJB project) which needs to be META-INF folder of ejbModule.

Hi,

I think my question was more on Rational rather than websphere Apologies if I wasnt sure earlier. I am kinda wondering what actions needed to be taken for deployment or even starting the server.

All that I've done (In Rational App. Developer) is to create an EJB project, a bean and mapped the datasources/jndi etc. When I start the server, the above exceptions get thrown. I am not sure if there is something like the "Export' step that I am missing.

Thanks,
Aravind
