A book about rethinking Java EE Patterns


Hi Adam,

First of all, I like your practical approach and follow your work. I'm reading your books with pleasure.

Now about interceptors. I'm using glassfish 311 open source and the oracle jdk6. I'm using maven 3 to build things.

When I'm using the 'new style' interceptors (@InterceptorBinding) and put them in separate jars which are used in a war then the interceptor is not always working.

If you're interested have a look at a bunch of test projects I created to proove my point here:

Maybe this is a known issue to you.
