ejb-jar.xml and java annotations

hi all

i'm converting a project from jboss 3.2.1 to jboss 4.2.2, and it's not working !

I've narrowed it down and it's not connecting to the database.  it's using ejb to connect. to the database.  Do i need to change the ejb-jar.xml in jboss 4.2.2?  this is the first time i've worked with ejb and so i not sure what needs changing

i have a datasource-ds.sml file which specifies the username/password server etc.  

it's getting to a peice of code where it needs to get an id from the database and this is where it's failing

public interface getIId extends EJBObject
{ public long getNextId(String sequence) throws RemoteException; }

is anyone able to help me make ejb-jar.xml work with jboss 4.2.2 or is the way to go to use java annotations?

is anyone able to lead me to a java annotations tutorial or give any help with removign ejb-jar.xml and moving to java annotations

any help much appreciated

An interesting tutorial:

I think that in your case the best help is your IDE.
If you are using one make a small project from scratch using annotations. It will help to understand how to use annotations. In my case netbeans did the trick.

Good luck

You probably want to convert your EJB2 Entity beans to use JPA, it'll make things a lot easier in the long run!
