jboss.xml - This optional file is used to specify a different JNDI name for a bean's home interface. The default JNDI name for a bean is the ejb-jar.xml ejb-name element value.

I already have the book...

and I read it and it's awesome!

So since I have it go ahead and give my "winning" copy to another lucky person.

And thanks for the thought....

Norman and I have talked about that... We'll see.... :-)

Norman can verify this, but the docs are being expanced and revised as new versions come out. They are not going back to revise docs for older versions, so to see the progress, you need to look at the new docs for 4.0 and above and watch as things go forward. Also as Norman mentioned in another posting, you need to look at the information on the Wiki as well.

The book deals with J2EE 1.4 issues. Specifically it was written against JBoss 4.0.2 and done before the EJB 3 stuff was released, so the book doesn't cover that. But see the JBoss site for some good information and tutorials on EJB 3 with JBoss.

Yogesh,

Actually wscompile does create the WSDL file for you. This paragraph:

"Now, use the wscompile tool to generate the necessary files. Consider the following command executed from the apps directory:

prompt> wscompile -define -mapping build/mapping.xml -d build -nd build -classpath build config.xml

This command, which reads the config.xml file created earlier, creates the MyFirstService.wsdl file and mapping.xml in the build directory."

is from the article entitled "Developing Web Services with Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) 1.4 Platform" which is at:

http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2EE/j2ee_ws/

Hope that helps!

This is an issue with the sources for the book. We'll update those on the O'Reilly site. In the mean time, what you need to do is go here:

http://jakarta.apache.org/site/downloads/downloads_taglibs-standard.cgi

and download the 1.1 Standard Taglib.

Open up the zip that you get and copy jstl.jar and standard.jar into the /src/lib dir of the quote example your doing. Re-run ant and it'll deploy the app and those jars and then refresh your web page and the example will run.

I too work with both. Additionally at work, we use the full WebLogic Platform and from my perspective, JBoss is easier to cluster, install, configure, customize and run. Does it have as many "extra" features as WebLogic or WebSphere for that matter? No, but it is a full 1.4 Certified J2EE app server and it is a leader with Oracle in adopting and implementing new standards like EJB3. There's many reasons to use JBoss and take it seriously, but one of the top ones is that it runs everywhere you have a J2SE SDK. WebLogic and WebSphere don't. If you want all the "extras" then maybe you want WL or WS, but if you want what is arguably the most powerful, flexible and up-to-date app server out today, then JBoss is the one to beat.

I think instead of getting into a discussion of spec numbers, etc, what is really more relavant, is who is using JBoss to do real world things and what are they using it for. Please go to the link that follows to read about some customers using JBoss to do exciting things.

Resource utilization is a very real reason to use multiple VM's as the JVM can't get more than about 1.6 Gig usually on Intel and 3.6 Gig on Solaris/Sparc boxes. If you have more RAM and CPU you put more VM's on the box. Here's a link to an article that explains more about the VM issues.

I would recommend you go here to read about it more:

http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=JBossPortalFeatures

I think that should cover some of what your looking for.
