Thanks for the advice David. I'm still using Geronimo 1.1 and haven't even looked at 2.0 yet. MyEclipse is also lacking in support of EJB 3.0 standards.I have the O'Reilly "Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0" sitting on my desk. I'm mired in that bleeding edge boundary and have been trying to learn the current production (EJB 2.1 and Geronimo 1.1/1.2) method while keeping an eye towards the future (EJB 3.0 and Geronimo 2.0). Having tutorials on the legacy way have significantly influenced my learning direction.I've presumed that a migration path exists for 2.1x CMP to JPA. I've also looked at Hibernate from the web container as an option. The apps not very big at this point, so I can afford to re-tool it in the next version.
Does a document exist yet on the geronimo specifics of performing a migration from 1.1/1.2 to 2.0 that discusses the shift from CMP to JPA?
Not having an IDE based tutorial that takes one through the whole stack with the application server really extends the learning curve!
Anyway, thanks for the answer on the lack of decent XDoclet support.-------- Original Message --------

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 development.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.thanksdavid jencks
