Subject AW: Weblogic 5.1 task (ejbc alternative)

Hi Conor,

thanks for the fast reply. I managed to get the EjbJar task compiled in
(oh yes, the -Dejb.build=true setting...) but I do not get it to work.

My source layout looks like this: There is a directory for every bean:

	<base>/build.xml
	<base>/src/de/picturesafe/adam/ejb/person

In this directory are these files;

	Home interface         PersonHome.java
	Remote interface       Person.java
	Business interface     PersonBusiness.java
	Bean implementation    PersonBean.java
	PK                     PersonPK.java


	WEB-INF/ejb-jar.xml
	WEB-INF/weblogic-ejb-jar.xml

I would like to have this setup for every single ejb.

Can you give me a hint what I do have to put in my build.xml file? I tried

    <ejbjar
    	srcdir="src"
      destdir="../build/classes"
      generateweblogic = "true"
      keepgeneric = "true"
    	basenameterminator = "-"
    	genericjarsuffix = "-generic.jar"
    	weblogicjarsuffix = "-wl.jar"
    />

But I get an Exception:

--> I do have only one DD!!

  [ejbjar] 476 deployment descriptors located.

Great.

yell-yell-yell!
