ejb-in-ear quickstart demonstrates the deployment of an EAR artifact to Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. The EAR contains: JSF 2.1 WAR and an EJB 3.1 JAR.
The example is composed of three Maven projects, each with a shared parent. The projects are as follows:
ejb: This project contains the EJB code and can be built independently to produce the JAR archive.
web: This project contains the JSF pages and the managed bean.
ear: This project builds the EAR artifact and pulls in the EJB and Web artifacts.
pom.xml builds each of the subprojects in the above order and deploys the EAR archive to the server.
The example follows the common "Hello World" pattern. These are the steps that occur:
GreeterEJB, which was injected to the managed bean. Notice the field annotated with
GreeterEJBis stored in a field (message) of the managed bean.
@SessionScoped, so the same managed bean instance is used for the entire session. This ensures that the message is available when the page reloads and is displayed to the user.
The application this project produces is designed to be run on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.1 or later.
All you need to build this project is Java 6.0 (Java SDK 1.6) or later, Maven 3.0 or later.
If you have not yet done so, you must Configure Maven before testing the quickstarts.
In the following instructions, replace
EAP_HOME with the actual path to your JBoss EAP 6 installation. The installation path is described in detail here: Use of EAP_HOME and JBOSS_HOME Variables.
The following shows the command line to start the server:
For Linux: EAP_HOME/bin/standalone.sh For Windows: EAP_HOME\bin\standalone.bat
NOTE: The following build command assumes you have configured your Maven user settings. If you have not, you must include Maven setting arguments on the command line. See Build and Deploy the Quickstarts for complete instructions and additional options.
Type this command to build and deploy the archive:
mvn clean install jboss-as:deploy
target/jboss-ejb-in-ear.earto the running instance of the server.
The application will be running at the following URL http://localhost:8080/jboss-ejb-in-ear.
Enter a name in the input field and click the Greet button to see the response.
When you are finished testing, type this command to undeploy the archive:
You can also start the server and deploy the quickstarts or run the Arquillian tests from Eclipse using JBoss tools. For general information about how to import a quickstart, add a JBoss EAP server, and build and deploy a quickstart, see Use JBoss Developer Studio or Eclipse to Run the Quickstarts
If you want to debug the source code of any library in the project, run the following command to pull the source into your local repository. The IDE should then detect it.
