The OpenEJB Spring integration makes all Spring defined beans injectable to Java EE components, and all Java EE components can be injected to Spring beans. The injection system supports arbitrarily complex nesting (e.g., Spring bean injected into a Java EE component, which is then injected into another Spring bean), including:
In addition, the OpenEJB Spring integration add support for discovery and deployment of standard Java EE packages within a Spring context, including:
Requirements: * OpenEJB 3.1+ * Spring X.X * Java 1.5 or 1.6
The following beans are usable in any spring xml file.
|org.apache.openejb.spring.ClassPathApplication||Scrapes the classpath for all EJB, RAR, and Persistence applications, deploys them, and imports them into the current ApplicationContext. All applications found are treated as one big EAR unless the _classpathAsEar_ property is set to _false_|
|org.apache.openejb.spring.Application||Scrapes an individual jar file for EJB, RAR, and Persistence applications, deploys them, and imports them into the current ApplicationContext. The 'jarFile' property is required. The application is treated as it's own self-contained EAR, separate from other uses of 'Application'|
|org.apache.openejb.spring.Resource|| Allows an OpenEJB |
|org.apache.openejb.spring.OpenEJBResource||A FactoryBean that imports a Resource from OpenEJB into the Spring ApplicationContext. Has the following properties: _type_ such as javax.sql.DataSource, and _resourceId_. In the future this bean will not be required and all OpenEJB Resources will automatically be imported into the Spring ApplicationContext|
|org.apache.openejb.spring.BmpContainer|| Allows an OpenEJB BMP
|org.apache.openejb.spring.CmpContainer|| Allows an OpenEJB CMP
|org.apache.openejb.spring.SingletonContainer|| Allows an OpenEJB
|org.apache.openejb.spring.StatefulContainer|| Allows an OpenEJB Stateful
|org.apache.openejb.spring.StatelessContainer|| Allows an OpenEJB Stateful
|org.apache.openejb.spring.MdbContainer|| Allows an OpenEJB Message-Driven
|org.apache.openejb.spring.EJB||A FactoryBean that imports an EJB from OpenEJB into the Spring ApplicationContext. One of these is automatically created for each interface of each EJB, but explicit use can be nice if you desire to import an EJB with a specific name. Has the following properties: _deploymentId_, _interface_|
See the Spring EJB and JPA page for example code and a working Spring xml file.
If you are having problems with the installation, please send a message to the OpenEJB users mailing list containing any error message(s) and the following information:
JavaAgent - OpenEJB uses OpenJPA to provide JPA and CMP persistence, and OpenJPA currently requires a JavaAgent to function properly in a Java 1.5 environment. OpenJPA does not require a JavaAgent in Java 1.6. Use Hibernate as your the provider in your persistence.xml files if you wish to avoid this requirement.
EntityManager - Having an OpenEJB created EntityManager or EntityManagerFactory injected into Spring beans is currently not supported. This will be added to the next release. A small workaround for this is to use an EJB as a factory by adding a 'getEntityManager' method an using it as a Spring instance factory method .
