Subject RE: Visual Age EJB exports
Date Tue, 20 Feb 2001 23:46:05 GMT
Thanks - I found your tasks in the latest BETA release.  Unfortunately, 
WebSphere still only uses EJB 1.0, so all descriptors are serialized 
classes.  I haven't found a way to get them out of Visual Age without 
using the GUI "Deploy EJB" wizard.
