EJB3 persistence unit setup in JBoss

I have a situation where I've got the following:

1) JBoss 4.2.1 as the app server.
2) Development of an n-tier J2EE app using Netbeans 5.5.1
3) The back-end stuff: A Sybase-15 database my company had some
dba gurus set up / populate with data.

Ok, that being said. I've managed to create a JSF standalone app that
calls simple JDBC to the database just to test connectivity / proof of concept.

I'm now going through an effort to separate out the database logic and
create a proper J2EE solution. (all this in EJB3)

The steps I've taken so far in this effort :
1) Netbeans has a very nice tool that allows me to map all the database tables / relationships to their java object counterparts. (Took all the business objects and put them inside their own business object package.)

2) Created a simple set of DAO classes that references a combination of business objects created from item #1.

3) In the setup, told Netbeans that I'm having Hibernate to handle the persistence within JBoss.

4) Created a set of test EJB remote interfaces / beans to talk to the DAOs and implement the business logic.

Here's where I'm starting to get a little lost.

Netbeans created a jboss.xml file within its configuration files. Yet, that file has no content associated with it. (Looking at the literature, Netbeans says if you're going to use JBoss / WebLogic you got to provide this information. However, I'm not sure what goes in this file.)

I'm not bundling the application as a full-fleged EAR file. (Basically, I want to take the EJB portion and hosting this on a separate JBoss 4.2.1 server. Then, writing a set of web applications to talk to that server via a JNDI lookup where it will be housed from a different server. Essentially, I want to take my JSF app and re-factor the JDBC calls to deal with the EJBs directly.)

At this point, I'm not entirely sure whether this is an appropriate question for Netbeans 5.5.1 or JBoss. I havent put anything into JBoss.xml just yet.

When I bundle the .jar file and deploy to a JBoss 4.2.1 server, JBoss complains about not being able to find the persistence unit. So, I'm a little stuck here.

I'd appreciate any insights.

Thank you,
Chad

Do you refer to EntityManager/PersistentContext in your jar? If yes, do you have a persistence.xml in the META-INF (case sensitive) folder of the ejb jar file?

Also, post the exception stacktrace that you see.

Here's a list of the configuration files I have so far.

---persistence.xml-----------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<persistence version="1.0" xmlns=...>
<persistence-unit name="myDataTierPU" transaction-type="JTA">
<provider>org.hibernate.ejb.HibernatePersistence</provider>
<jta-data-source>MyApp</jta-data-source>
<properties>
<property name="hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto" value="update"/>
</properties>
</persistence-unit>
</persistence>
-----jboss-ds.xml--------------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<datasources>
<local-tx-datasource>
<jndi-name>MyApp</jndi-name>
<connection-url>jdbc:sybase:Tds:myserver.proj.org:7001/dummyDatabase
</connection-url>
<driver-class>com.sybase.jdbc3.jdbc.SybDriver</driver-class>
<user-name>guestUser</user-name>
<password>guest</password>
<min-pool-size>5</min-pool-size>
<max-pool-size>20</max-pool-size>
<idle-timeout-minutes>5</idle-timeout-minutes>
</local-tx-datasource>
</datasources>
----------------------------
---jboss.xml----------------
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<jboss/>
----------------------------

I'll send a stack trace here shortly. This is what I have so far.

Again, appreciate your help.

Thanks,
Chad

I had to sanitize this a bit, but here's the start of the error stack trace that I'm getting when I try to deploy the EJB to a jboss-4.2.1 server.

Anything helpful here ?

javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: MyApp not bound



By default, the datasources in JBoss are bound to the java: namespace. Change your persistence.xml as follows:
