I've started trying to use various examples about JEE5/JEE6 which all seem to use
mappedname as Glassfish, Weblogic and recently Websphere is using it (as a name that can
be used at both declaration and resource lookup time within the same module)
I know that mappendname is left unspecified in the spec, but it seems most other JEE
vendors have aligned (or at least seem to have aligned).
From what I can understand and see JBoss EJB3 have had different
implementations of this over time and in AS 7 have moved to simply completely ignore the
Does there exist any forum threads and documentation (beyond the that outlines
the reasons why JBoss EJB3 isn't aligning with what seems to be the consensus across
the various servers ?
I'm asking since it would make not only users but also tool developers life much
easier if one could actually write and generate almost portable code ;)
