The Time Bean Example
This is a very simple example of a JSP-page calling a Session Bean. The result looks like this:
The primary purpose of the example is to provide a very simple demonstration of an EJB session bean. It is not intended to be a complete example or one that could be used as a template for creating your own EJB session bean. This is an example using Geronimo 2.1, Java 1.5 and EJB 3.0.
MyTimeBean.java is an EJB that can tell time. The EJB is in the package org.apache.geronimo.samples.mytimepak. By using the @Stateless annotation Geronimo will recognize that this is a stateless session bean. There is no need for a ejb-jar.xml.
MyTimeLocal.java is the Local interface. As this EJB will only be used from a JSP-page that is running in the same server (same JVM) I use a Local interface that do not make use of the network.
index.jsp utilizes the MyTimeBean to tell time.
