Subject Question on @EJB and JNDI lookup
Date Wed, 05 May 2010 08:54:33 GMT
Hi OpenEJB community

I initially asked this on Geronimo forums, they sent me here

I have some CXF service classes and I was using explicit JNDI lookup to retrive some stateless
EJB instancess that the web services classes would call.
I did the lookup only once, in a static{} block in the service classes.
All was fine, but at some point after some heavy load on the server I got a nasty exception

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Bean 'Services-1.0.jar/SystemStatusAware' has been undeployed.
 at org.apache.openejb.core.ivm.BaseEjbProxyHandler.getDeploymentInfo(
 at org.apache.openejb.core.ivm.BaseEjbProxyHandler.invoke(
 at org.apache.openejb.util.proxy.Jdk13InvocationHandler.invoke(

I assumed this was the 'expected' behavior, i.e. OpenEJB trying to free up the resources and
'invalidating' the EJB proxy.

I thought I could get around this using plain servlets and @EJB annotation. However, I fear
the same issue may occur as I think @EJB transaltes to a single JNDI lookup and I won't get
a fresh bean instance at each call into the servlet.
Should I use an explicit JNDI lookup and only cache the InitialContext?

I'm using Geronimo 2.1.4 and the OpenEJB embedded in it.

Many thanks
