    Blog example in 2.0.0CR2 fails under Tomcat

    Rob Jellinghaus Novice

      I have Java 1.6.0_03. I can build Seam 2.0.0CR2 without difficulty (Maven 2 fires right up and seems to pull everything). I can then "cd examples/blog" and "ant tomcat.deploy". I take jboss-seam-blog.war from the place it puts it, and drop it into my actual Tomcat 5.5.12 webapps directory, and launch Tomcat.

      And boom:

      According to good old FindClass, the missing class is in el-api.jar and jsp-api.jar, neither of which are built into jboss-seam-blog.war. So it makes perfect sense that it can't be found.
      
      Are all the examples being regressed under Tomcat?
      
      I'll now look into how to hack the build to get those jar files into the Tomcat war. One thing about the new centralized build, it makes it harder to tweak the examples :-\
      
      Will file a JIRA momentarily.
      Cheers,
