E EJBGen Reference

EJBGen is an Enterprise JavaBeans 2.x code generator. If you annotate your Bean class file with JDK 1.5 annotations, you can use EJBGen to generate the Remote and Home classes and the deployment descriptor files for an EJB application.

Oracle recommends that you use EJBGen to generate deployment descriptors; this Oracle best practice allows for easier and simpler maintenance of EJBs. If you use EJBGen, you need to write and annotate only one bean class file, which simplifies writing, debugging, and maintenance. The following sections provide instructions on using EJBGen and define EJBGen command options and annotations:

Running EJBGen

These sections describe how to process an annotated bean file using EJBGen:

EJBGen Distribution and Examples

In this release of WebLogic Server, EJBGen and associated classes are included in weblogic.jar in the WL_HOME/server/lib of the WebLogic Server distribution. To use EJBGen, make sure weblogic.jar is in your CLASSPATH. EJBGen annotations can be found in the weblogic.ejbgen package.

If you have installed Oracle WebLogic Server examples, see WL_HOME\samples\server\examples\src\examples\ejb\ejb20\ and WL_HOME\samples\server\examples\src\examples\ejb\ejb21\ for an application that uses EJBGen.

Invoking EJBGen

Use this command to run EJBGen on a bean source file:

com.bea.wls.ejbgen.EJBGen

Note:

To run this command, weblogic.jar must be in your CLASSPATH.

If you are invoking EJBGen for an EJB that has relationships with other EJBs, invoke the related EJBs by naming them, following your EJB, in the invocation, as follows:

com.bea.wls.ejbgen.EJBGen (YourBean).java (RelatedBean).java

Note:

You can also invoke EJBGen via the ejbgen ant task, which is also included in weblogic.jar.

EJBGen Command Options

Table E-1 defines EJBGen command options.

Controlling the Files EJBGen Generates

By default, EJBGen generates the following files:

  • Remote bean and home interfaces (if weblogic.ejbgen.JndiName with "remote" was specified)

  • Local bean and home interfaces (if weblogic.ejbgen.JndiName with "local" was specified)

  • Value object classes

  • Primary key classes (if applicable)

You can selectively disable the generation of these files by using the weblogic.ejbgen.FileGeneration tag. This can be done on a per-bean basis.

Using Property Files with EJBGen

EJBGen can gather information for generation from property files, as discussed in this section.

Use the -propertyFile option to tell EJBGen to parse a properties file.

Use the following syntax to invoke EJBGen with the -propertyFile option:

com.bea.wls.ejbgen.EJBGen -propertyFile property-file AccountBean.java

EJBGen recognizes two kinds of variables in a properties file: user variables and predefined variables.

Using User Variables

EJBGen tags can use variables instead of strings. These variables must be enclosed with "${" and "}".

Variables can be used anywhere after an EJBGen tag, so they can contain whole tag definitions.

Using Predefined Variables

EJBGen recognizes a number of predefined variables. These variables are not supposed to be used in tags but EJBGen will use them at various places depending on their role. Recognized variables are:

  • remote.baseClass

    If specified, the value of this variable will be used as the base class for all generated remote classes.

  • home.baseClass

    If specified, the value of this variable will be used as the base class for all generated remote home classes.

  • local.baseClass

    If specified, the value of this variable will be used as the base class for all generated local classes.

  • localHome.baseClass

    If specified, the value of this variable will be used as the base class for all generated local home classes.

  • value.baseClass

    If specified, the value of this variable will be used as the base class for all generated value classes.

  • value.package

    If specified, the value of this variable will be used as the package for all generated value classes.

  • value.interfaces

    If specified, the value of this variable will be used as the interfaces the value class should implement. This variable can be a list of interfaces separated by commas.

You can make these variables more specific by prefixing them with an EJBName. For example, consider the following property file.

#
# property-file
#
Account.home.baseClass = BaseAccountHome
home.baseClass = BaseHome
value.package = value
containerManaged.value.package=valuePackageForContainerManaged

All homes generated by EJBGen extend the class BaseHome except the home of EJB "Account", which extends BaseAccountHome.

Surround Attributes that Contain Spaces With Double Quotes

When you specify an attribute that contains spaces, surround the attribute value with double quotes. For example:

group-names = "group1, group2"

EJBGen Supports Tag Inheritance

One of the main features in EJBGen 2.x is tag inheritance. You inherit EJBGen annotations the same way you do in Java. For example, assume that you have an EJB named AccountEJB with a base class BaseAccount, as in Example E-1:

weblogic.ejbgen.JndiName

Example E-1 Tag Inheritance

@JndiName(remote = "BaseRemote")

public class BaseAccount implements EntityBean {
// ...
}
Now, define your EJB class:
@Entity(ejbName = containerManaged,
    tableName = ejbAccounts,
    datasourceJndiName = examples-dataSource-demoPool)

//Note that we inherit the JNDI name defined in BaseAccount

public class AccountEJB extends BaseAccount {
// ...

Examples of EJBGen Tag Usage

These sections contain example source code annotated with EJBGen tags.

Mapping an Entity Bean to Several Tables with EJBGen

By default, entity beans are mapped to one table, with the attribute tableName on the tag @Entity. If you want to map your entity bean to more than one table, you can use the table-name attribute on individual @CmpFields provided the CMP fields are primary key fields that are mapped to corresponding primary key columns in each table. Any container-managed persistence fields that do not have a tableName attribute will use the table specified on @Entity (which can therefore be considered as the "default" table).

If you want to map an entity bean to several tables, you need to specify a comma-separated list of tables in the tableName attribute (and also on a column). Make sure that the number of tables matches the number of columns, and that the columns exist in the corresponding table.

Specifying Relationship Caching with EJBGen Tags

You can specify relationship caching elements with the @RelationshipCaching tag. This element can be nested (recursive). In other words, you can specify a tree representing all the relationship elements that you want to see cached.

In order to support this tree structure, @RelationshipCaching has two attributes, id and parentId. These attributes do not correspond to any XML, they simply allow you to specify your tree structure.

For example, if a cachingElement A needs to have two children elements B and C, all you need to specify is an id for A (say "root0") and a parentId for B and C equal to that name.

Example E-2 illustrates specifying relationship caching.

Example E-2 Specifying Relationship Caching

@RelationshipCachingElements(
@RelationshipCachingElement(cachingName = cacheMoreBeans,
 cmrField = employee,
 groupName = emp-group,
 id = A),
 
@RelationshipCachingElement(cachingName = cacheMoreBeans,
 cmrField = employee_ssn,
 groupName = emp-group,
 parentId = A),
 
@RelationshipCachingElement(cachingName = cacheMoreBeans,
 cmrField = employee_zip,
 groupName = emp-group,
    parentId = A)
)

Specifying Relationships with EJBGen Tags

Unidirectional relationships are achieved by specifying only the first two parameters of the relation tag (no CMR_field, no join table).

Note:

"Join table" was called "joint table" in pre-9.0 releases of WebLogic Server.

Many-to-many relationships must specify an extra table (parameter "join table") which must contain at least two columns. The names of these columns must match the names of the columns containing the foreign keys of the two beans being joined.

Upgrading Relationships to Use Local Interfaces

If you have EJBs based on a version of the EJB 2.0 specification that predates PFD2, you must update them. As of PFD2, relationships must be based on local interfaces, not remote ones. To upgrade your EJBs:

  1. Add a JNDI name for your local home interface:

    @JndiName
    remote = AccountHome
    local = AccountLocalHome
    
  2. Add @LocalMethod tags to any method you want to see appear on the local home interface. A method can have both @LocalMethod and @RemoteMethod.

  3. Change the return type of your container-managed relationship (CMP) accessing methods to that of the local EJB object (this only applies to single-valued CMR fields since multi-valued CMR fields are collections. Keep in mind that these collections contain Local EJB objects):

    @CmrField
    
    @RemoteMethod
    @LocalMethod
    
    abstract public LocalCustomer getCustomer();
