Shipments update.

Shipments is moving forward and getting in good shape, some delays to work on this module were caused by refactoring in the code and adjustments in the entity beans after the migration to the JBoss 4.0.4 version.

I'm still planning to create a release of Overactive Logistics before the end of this month, in the meantime here is an screen shoot of the shipments module.

JBoss 4.0.4

Finally last night I decided to migrate from JBoss 4.0.3 to JBoss 4.0.4. I'm so glad I did! since the EJB3.0 implementation has changed in the new version and it was much better having to deal with it now than later!.

EJB3.0 has made small changes in the entity bean notations and in the way references to sesision beans are acquired out of the InitialContext class. For example now the name that it is bound is the one of the class and not the interface and it should be appended with "/remote" or "/local" respectively.

Also it was very nice to found that JBoss 4.0.4 starts faster while in debug mode and that an existing bug that happened when deploying .par and .ejb3 at the same time has been fixed.
