Switch to JBoss 3.04

Switched development platform from Orion 1.6.0 to JBoss 3.04 this afternoon. Took about an hour, mainly because Jetty will not run with <distributable/> in web.xml. XDoclet puts a <distributable/> tag in there by default. Took a lot of forum-trawling to find that answer. Initial impressions are good – I was battling with JBoss 3 Alpha a few months ago and eventually gave up, but I’m glad to be back. Orion just seems to be stagnant – how long has the 1.6.0 release been sitting there going nowhere? It also seems a bit flakey – certainly won’t support hot redeployment – just errors every time.

Hope OC4J is in better shape…
