JAX-RS + JBoss 7.1.1 + RESTEasy: NullPointException using CDI


I'm developing a Java EE 6 solution and also trying to figure out the root cause of why the dependency injection is not working...NullPointerException inside my service (userDao line):

REST Service

@Path("rest") public class UserRESTService { @EJB UserDAO userDao; @GET @Produces({MediaType.APPLICATION_XML, MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON}) @Path("{type}") public String getJqGridData(@PathParam("type") String type) { System.out.println("type: " + type); List<USUARIO> usuarios = userDao.findAll(); int pageSize = 10; int pageNumber = ((int) usuarios.size()/pageSize)+1; JqGridData<USUARIO> data = new JqGridData<USUARIO>(pageNumber, 1, usuarios.size(), usuarios); System.out.println("Grid Data: " + data.getJsonString()); return data.getJsonString(); } }

REST Singleton

public class RESTEasySingleton extends Application { private Set<Object> singletons = new HashSet(); private Set<Class<?>> empty = new HashSet(); public RESTEasySingleton() { this.singletons.add(new UserRESTService()); } public Set<Class<?>> getClasses() { return this.empty; } public Set<Object> getSingletons() { return this.singletons; } }


@Stateless public class UserDAO extends BaseDAO<USUARIO>{ @PersistenceContext(unitName="MyJPA") private EntityManager em; public UserDAO(Class<USUARIO> entityClass) { super(entityClass); } public UserDAO() { super(USUARIO.class); } @SuppressWarnings("unchecked") public List<USUARIO> findAll() { Query q = getEntityManager().createQuery("SELECT e FROM " + USUARIO.class.getName() + " e"); List<USUARIO> list = (List<USUARIO>) q.getResultList(); return list; } @Override protected EntityManager getEntityManager() { return em; } }

Although, the injection works fine inside another managed bean...

@ManagedBean @RequestScoped @Named public class UserBean { public UserBean() { // TODO Auto-generated constructor stub } private List<USUARIO> users = new ArrayList<USUARIO>(); private String name; @Transient @EJB UserDAO userDao; ... }

Any ideas?


Add @RequestScoped to your rest endpoint. I would also remove the reference to the resteasy bootstrap in your web.xml, since you're deploying to an EE6 container it's not needed (the application extension is enough).
