Description Andrei Badea 2005-04-05 14:30:41 UTC
The EJB freeform project creates an unnecessary <classpath> element in its
<ejb-data> section of project.xml. Also the implementation of some methods in is wrong, since it relies on the content of this element.

Reassigning according to our discussion.
Comment 3 Andrei Badea 2006-08-01 13:27:47 UTC
The problem originally described in this issue was fixed. The classpath element
is not entirely unnecessary. Its contents is used to compute the return value of
the EjbJar module (or WebModule in the web freeform).

However, the correctness of this approach should still be investigated. The web
and EJB natures build on the Java nature, which has the concept of compilation
units. Compilation units can be disjunct and each one can have its own
classpath. However, the classpath element in the web and EJB natures seem to
ignore this and allow going across compilation unit boundaries. Instead of this,
a simple 1:N mapping of an EjbJar or WebModule to a set of compilation units
could be simpler and make more sense.

The EJB freeform project has been dropped from NetBeans 6.0.
Comment 5 Andrei Badea 2007-07-18 10:00:26 UTC
Still applies to the web freeform.
