    IllegalStateException Cannot find property

    aodhan hoffman Newbie

      I am using JBoss 4.2.2 w/ JbossWS Native 3.0.2. After some toil I got a client based on this config working, but then I run into this error which no one else seems to have run into.


      I called a ws to retrieve an AssDTO, I updat the AssetDTO, then call the ws' 'update' method passing it back the updated AssetDTO and it barfs with this un-descriptive error.

      Has anyone else seen this? Thanks!

          Here's the relevant part of the port class,

          This code was generated by wsconsume from the JBossWS package. I used a jaxb binding file with generateElementProperty="false" .

            I installed JBossAS 4.2.3, this time NOT updating it to JBossWS 3.0.4. I get the same error running my client through Eclipse. I tried wsrunclient ( v4.2.3) and got a different error:

            I am using code generated by JBoss, using JBoss to run it, why is JBoss carping out?

              Peter Johnson Master

              Based on the error message "setProperty must be overridden by all subclasses of SOAPMessage" I will guess that you are running with JDK 6. You should either fall back to JDK 1.5 or see http://jbws.dyndns.org/mediawiki/index.php?title=Install_JBossWS#Using_JBossWS_with_JDK_6 for getting this to work with JDK 6.

              I also want to caution you about running within a directory that has spaces in its name - that tends to give various Java libraries fits. It might not be an issue right now, but if you see weird errors you might want to move your code elsewhere.

                Thanks PeterJ for your suggestion.

                I went ahead and tried again from a 'space-less' directory path and ensured that I was using Java 1.5.x. No improvment.

                  It might not be an improvement, but at least it is different - the error message has changed! I don't recognize this error - I will have to do some research.

                  Did you regenerate the client stubs using the JBossAS 4.2.3 libraries/tools and JDK 1.5?

                    OK, just read the first post, and it looks like you are back to the error message in that post.

                        Peter Johnson Master

                        I looked at the source code.

                        The 'outbound' property is set to false when the client sends a request to JBossAS and to true when JBossAS responds back. The exception means that property has not been set.

                        Earlier in the stack trace, in CommonClient.invoke, line 404, we find that someone commited the cardinal sin of exception handling - they dropped the exception on the floor not even bothering to log it. Instead, they called processPivotInternal which eventually threw the exception that you saw.

                        So that is why the exception makes no sense - the real cause for the problem was thrown away.

                        Unfortunately, unless someone else has any ideas, the only thing I can think of is for you to patch CommonClient.invoke and log the exception so that you can discover the root cause.

                          Okay, PeterJ. That helps define the problem. I'd understood that the property wasn't being set, but I hadn't found my way far enough upstream in the source to find the headwaters, so to speak, in CommonClient.

                          I'll look into tweaking the class and see what I get. Thanks!

                            OK, I've patched the sources to log that exception (which btw you should have got in the soap fault anyway). This will be available in JBossWS 3.0.6.
                            Did you find the reason of your issue in the mean time?
