Question reg Deployer's responsibility
posted 11 years ago
How is the deployer responsible for making sure that the target bean type in the operational environemnt matches the bean type specified in the ejb-ref tag specified by the bean provider. It is the bean provider who decides the type of the bean he writes - session or entity. So, I think the bean provider should ensure that when he specifies an ejb-ref-type element, that type should be the same as whatever type the bean with the specified <home> and <remote> tags in the same ejb-ref element have. The deployer has nothing to do with the bean type. Can someone pl clarify?
