Last week, we had the author of TDD for a Shopping Website LiveProject. Friday at 11am Ranch time, Steven Solomon will be hosting a live TDD session just for us. See for the agenda and registration link
Some of my reading indicates that the 'ejb-jar.xml' file is the deployment descriptor and other reading says its the "MyBeanDD.ser" file. Whats the scoop and how do I create a deployment descriptor? Thanks, Billy
Hi, Both of it is right. .ser file is a deployment descriptor files for EJB's which complies with the EJB 1.1 specification and .xml files are those which comply with the EJB 1.2 specification and above. Apparently the reason for changing from a serialized format of storing deployment descriptors to a xml format was for better readability and modifiability. cheerio Nitin

Hey Bill What you have read is right "ejb-jar.xml" is the deployment decriptor. The xml descriptors were introduced with ejb 1.1 specification. "*.ser" was used with ejb 1.0 specs.. You don't have to worry about creating/writing the xml descriptor ,bcas the deploytool automatically creates. If you are creating the jar file on you own through " java cf ....." then you have to write the xml descriptor and other required xml files ...This will be a cold deployment..Hope you know that..

It looks like it's time for me to write you a reality check! Or maybe a tiny ad!
