Subject [jira] [Commented] (GERONIMO-6435) Invalid method interface: MessageEndpoint
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2013 08:17:13 GMT


David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-6435:

The latest JACC spec I can find (1.4MR2) says this on p. 84:

A MethodInterfaceName is a non-empty String and should contain a method-intf value as defined
for use in EJB deployment descriptors. An implementation must be flexible such that it supports
additional interface names especially if they are standardized by the EJB Specification. The
EJB Specification currently defines the following method-intf values:
{ "Home", "LocalHome", "Remote", "Local", "ServiceEndpoint" }

This suggests to me that the container is supposed to provide for additional method interfaces
(such as MessageEndpoint and Timer from ejb 3.1) by using the extensibility property of the
api, in this case by setting the
system property.  I think the intent of the jacc spec is that the api implementation not be
modified for additional method interfaces, but that the container use the extensibility.

I don't see that Geronimo itself has done this.
