    TopLink with Jboss 4.2.1 not working?

    Alexander Tsirel Newbie

      I'm stuck with the problem described in this forum thread:
      http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=128533
      and decided to try toplink instead of hibernate to see whether it is hibernate problem.

      But when I'm using toplink
      1) if I'm not specifying toplink.target-server property like this:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <persistence xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/persistence">
       <persistence-unit name="first">
       <provider>oracle.toplink.essentials.PersistenceProvider</provider>
       <jta-data-source>java:/TestEJB3DS</jta-data-source>
       <properties>
       <!--<property name="toplink.target-server" value="oracle.toplink.essentials.platform.server.jboss.JBossPlatform"/>-->
       <property name="toplink.ddl-generation" value="drop-and-create-tables"/>
       </properties>
       </persistence-unit>
      </persistence>


      all entities fails to deploy with such messages:
      13:14:14,143 INFO [STDOUT] [TopLink Warning]: 2008.02.08 01:14:14.143--java.lang.NullPointerException: null was thrown on attempt of PersistenceLoadProcessor to load class com.gemini.test.ejb.entity.relationship.Course. The class is ignored.


      2) and if I'm adding this property:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <persistence xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/persistence">
       <persistence-unit name="first">
       <provider>oracle.toplink.essentials.PersistenceProvider</provider>
       <jta-data-source>java:/TestEJB3DS</jta-data-source>
       <properties>
       <property name="toplink.target-server" value="oracle.toplink.essentials.platform.server.jboss.JBossPlatform"/>
       <property name="toplink.ddl-generation" value="drop-and-create-tables"/>
       </properties>
       </persistence-unit>
      </persistence>


      deployment fails with:
      
      13:25:08,617 WARN [ServiceController] Problem starting service persistence.units:ear=javaEEApplication.ear,jar=EJB.jar,unitName=first
      javax.persistence.PersistenceException: Exception [TOPLINK-28018] (Oracle TopLink Essentials - 2.0 (Build b41-beta2 (03/30/2007))): oracle.toplink.essentials.exceptions.EntityManagerSetupException

      Any ideas?

          Hi,
          The following workaround has been checked in for EclipseLink M8 to work with JBoss 4.2.2 GA.
          Container managed entities should predeploy/deploy and register now with/without static weaving.
          When the UCL3 classLoader no longer causes a NPE (See JIRA http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/EJBTHREE-572 ) we will reenable dynamic weaving on EAR predeploy().

          http://bugs.eclipse.org/229634

          Workaround:
          ---------------------------------
          EclipseLink will use the non-temporary classLoader instead of the one from getNewTempClassLoader() obtained from the JBoss PersistenceUnitInfo that throws a NPE on loadClass() or Class.forName().
          We require that JBoss implementers statically weave container managed entities and reference JBoss as the target-server in persistence.xml.

          Deployment Changes:
          1) If weaving is required then static weave the entities before EAR packaging using either the command-line weaver or the weaving ant task.
          2) All persistence units deployed to the JBoss container must contain the following property in persistence.xml or container managed entities will predeploy but fail to be managed at runtime.



          JBoss AS 4.2.2 GA debugging:
          ----------------------------------------------------------
          I debugged the UCL3 NullPointerException into the JBoss AS 4.2.2 GA source into the following segment of code.

          In the following function the classloader parent tree is searched all the way to the root.
          no clazz is returned and in the finally clause the last log.trace causes a RuntimeException on a NPE.
          Curious though that the line number in Logger.trace() does not correspond to the JDK 1.5 src.

          package org.jboss.mx.loading
          public abstract class RepositoryClassLoader extends URLClassLoader
          public Class loadClass(String name, boolean resolve)
          throws ClassNotFoundException
          ...
          finally
          ...
          --->NPE log.trace("loadClass " + this + " name=" + name + " not found");
          }
          }
          }
