    Jboss and Spring

    Paul Edwards Newbie

      Guys,

      I am new to jboss. I've got a prewritten spring application, that I now need to run out of jboss. I've had a play with the jboss-spring deployer, but its still using 1.2.5 version of spring, which doesn't work with my code.

      So I need to know how to start spring application context from a war file.

      Alesj, you state in the JBoss/Spring development sticky thread that: simple instantiation of app context inside war is basic stuff...

      I'm sorry, but I haven't found it simple, but then I don't have huge experience with war files. All I'm wanting to do, is start my app. Please are you able to supply a simple war file example?

      Thanks very much for your help.
      Paul.

          Like I said in the sticky, deploying Spring .war file/application is what Spring is all about - see their basic instructions. JBoss (Tomcat) in this case only serves as a web container.

          What JBoss/Spring is about, is the integration with EJB3 or any AOP injection capable module.

          Not true. There is not so new release that supports Spring 2.0.

          See Spring instructions.
          There must be Spring specific ServletContextListener defined in web.xml.

          Any working .war should do.
          JBoss (Tomcat) is a normal web container. ;-)
