public class EjbJar extends MatchingTask
Provides automated EJB JAR file creation.

Extends the MatchingTask class provided in the default ant distribution to provide a directory scanning EJB jarfile generator.

The task works by taking the deployment descriptors one at a time and parsing them to locate the names of the classes which should be placed in the jar. The classnames are translated to by replacing periods with File.separatorChar and resolving the generated filename as a relative path under the srcDir attribute. All necessary files are then assembled into a jarfile. One jarfile is constructed for each deployment descriptor found.

    • createSupport

      public FileSet createSupport()
      Adds a fileset for support elements.
      a fileset which can be populated with support files.
    • setManifest

      public void setManifest(File manifest)
      Set the Manifest file to use when jarring. As of EJB 1.1, manifest files are no longer used to configure the EJB. However, they still have a vital importance if the EJB is intended to be packaged in an EAR file. By adding "Class-Path" settings to a Manifest file, the EJB can look for classes inside the EAR file itself, allowing for easier deployment. This is outlined in the J2EE specification, and all J2EE components are meant to support it.
      manifest - the manifest to be used in the EJB jar
    • setSrcdir

      public void setSrcdir(File inDir)
      Sets the source directory, which is the directory that contains the classes that will be added to the EJB jar. Typically this will include the home and remote interfaces and the bean class.
      inDir - the source directory.
    • setDescriptordir

      public void setDescriptordir(File inDir)
      Set the descriptor directory. The descriptor directory contains the EJB deployment descriptors. These are XML files that declare the properties of a bean in a particular deployment scenario. Such properties include, for example, the transactional nature of the bean and the security access control to the bean's methods.
      inDir - the directory containing the deployment descriptors.
    • setDependency

      public void setDependency(String analyzer)
      Set the analyzer to use when adding in dependencies to the JAR.
      analyzer - the name of the dependency analyzer or a class.
    • setBasejarname

      public void setBasejarname(String inValue)
      Set the base name of the EJB JAR that is to be created if it is not to be determined from the name of the deployment descriptor files.
      inValue - the basename that will be used when writing the jar file containing the EJB
    • setNaming

      public void setNaming(EjbJar.NamingScheme namingScheme)
      Set the naming scheme used to determine the name of the generated jars from the deployment descriptor
      namingScheme - the naming scheme to be used
    • getDestdir

      public File getDestdir()
      Gets the destination directory.
      destination directory
      ant 1.6
    • setDestdir

      public void setDestdir(File inDir)
      Set the destination directory. The EJB jar files will be written into this directory. The jar files that exist in this directory are also used when determining if the contents of the jar file have changed. Note that this parameter is only used if no deployment tools are specified. Typically each deployment tool will specify its own destination directory.
      inDir - the destination directory in which to generate jars
    • getCmpversion

      public String getCmpversion()
      Gets the CMP version.
      CMP version
      ant 1.6
    • setCmpversion

      public void setCmpversion(EjbJar.CMPVersion version)
      Sets the CMP version. Must be either 1.0 or 2.0. Default is 1.0. Initially, only the JBoss implementation does something specific for CMP 2.0.
      version - CMP version.
      ant 1.6
    • setClasspath

      public void setClasspath(Path classpath)
      Set the classpath to use when resolving classes for inclusion in the jar.
      classpath - the classpath to use.
    • setFlatdestdir

      public void setFlatdestdir(boolean inValue)
      Controls whether the destination JARs are written out in the destination directory with the same hierarchical structure from which the deployment descriptors have been read. If this is set to true the generated EJB jars are written into the root of the destination directory, otherwise they are written out in the same relative position as the deployment descriptors in the descriptor directory.
      inValue - the new value of the flatdestdir flag.
    • setGenericjarsuffix

      public void setGenericjarsuffix(String inString)
      Set the suffix for the generated jar file. When generic jars are generated, they have a suffix which is appended to the the bean name to create the name of the jar file. Note that this suffix includes the extension fo te jar file and should therefore end with an appropriate extension such as .jar or .ear
      inString - the string to use as the suffix.
    • setBasenameterminator

      public void setBasenameterminator(String inValue)
      The string which terminates the bean name. The convention used by this task is that bean descriptors are named as the BeanName with some suffix. The baseNameTerminator string separates the bean name and the suffix and is used to determine the bean name.
      inValue - a string which marks the end of the basename.
    • execute

      public void execute() throws BuildException
      Invoked by Ant after the task is prepared, when it is ready to execute this task. This will configure all of the nested deployment tools to allow them to process the jar. If no deployment tools have been configured a generic tool is created to handle the jar. A parser is configured and then each descriptor found is passed to all the deployment tool elements for processing.
      execute in class Task
      BuildException - thrown whenever a problem is encountered that cannot be recovered from, to signal to ant that a major problem occurred within this task.
