Do you have the xerces jar that ships with Seam in your classpath?
Thanks for the reply. I have xercesImpl-2.7.0.jar in the classpath.
Is this the required one
You should be using *exactly* the jars that ship with Seam.
There are instructions for what classpath to use for unit testing inside eclipse that go along with the example apps. So work from the examples.
I compared the jars i have in the classpath and the jars in the embedded-ejb/lib and found that two jars cglib and commons-lang were different. SO i fixed that and ran it again. Still i get the same exception.
Is there something else that needs to be fixed?
One more question how do i know that embedded ejb container has started?.
You'll have to give much more information if you want more help. Try showing a whole debug-level log showing debug messages from all org.jboss.*
