Following are answers to a few common questions.
Q. Is IIOP supported for Blazix EJB?
Q. Is container managed persistence supported
A. Yes. The default protocol used in Blazix EJB
is JRMP, because Blazix works both JDK 1.2 and
above, and JDK 1.2 doesn't include IIOP. (JDK 1.2
users can download and install IIOP from Sun Microsystems'
web site.) See Blazix documentation pages on how
to switch from JRMP to IIOP.
Q. Which versions of technology specifications
does Blazix comply with?
A. Yes. Blazix supports all the features required by the
official EJB specifications, including CMP and distributed
Q. Various features are supported via the configuration
files, e.g. the login forms. Does this mean they are not supported
as required by the specifications, via a deployment descriptor?
A. Blazix complies with EJB 1.1, Servlets 2.3, JSP 1.2
and JMS 1.0.2 specifications.
A. Blazix has a dual model. When Blazix was written,
creating a deployment descriptor could be a a complex task due to
lack of sufficient tools. Therefore Blazix provides
an easy alternative of doing many things directly from the
configuration files. You can also do the same things from
the deployment descriptor, as per specifications.
