Is JBoss 4.2.x AS Java EE 5 compatible?

March 20, 2008

The answer is “NO”. Because some people ask me this question all the time, I think now is the time to make some explanations concerning that issue.

“The new planned JBoss Application Server 5 will support the entire Java EE 5 specification.”

JBoss 4.2.X implemented EJB 3.0 functionality by the way of EJB MBean Container. That means it runs as plugim in the APPServer. As a consequence of the EJB 3.0 plugin integration, JBoss 4.2.X supports injection of @EJB references and EntityManager between different EJB components and this support is limited only to the EJB 3.0 MBeam and the JAR files.
Any reference of @EJB into a WAR (with servlets and JSF) can’t be released in JBoss 4.2.X AS.

I hope the information was helpful.
