How to define dependency between Service Archive Resource - SAR and DataSource in Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platfor 6.x?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • If migration process has been performed from JBoss EAP 5.x to JBoss EAP 6.x, there should be configuration issue of defining dependency between DataSource and Services.

  • JBoss EAP 5.x has <depends> tag in DataSource file (*-ds.xml) to define dependency on other services, whereas this kind of configuration is removed from JBoss EAP 6.x and single file standalone*.xml or domain.xml introduced to provide DataSource entry.

  • In JBoss EAP 5.x the SAR - Service Archive Resources provided Mbeans dependency could be defined using <depends> tag.

  • If such tags are being used in DataSource entry of standalone*.xml or domain.xml in JBoss EAP 6.x, then following kind of exceptions will be thrown at the time of server start-up as it is not supported in JBoss EAP 6.x where as @org.jboss.ejb3.annotation.Service and @org.jboss.ejb3.annotation.Management are no longer supported which could be used to define Services.
