Subject Re: XDoclet Support for OpenEJB - Generating the openejb-jar.xml with MyEclipse
Date Mon, 09 Apr 2007 16:50:19 GMT
I cannot express how strongly I recommend that you use jpa rather  
than cmp for any project you have any control over, such as new  

I believe the xdoclet stuff you refer to doesn't work at all with  
geronimo-openejb, I think it is for openejb 1 which is not integrated  
with geronimo.  In any case using ejb 3.0 with annotations is a much  
better solution.
