What app server are you on? On JBoss, we recommend using an isolated classloader. (as in all the examples and in a seam-gen app)
Thx a lot! Using the isolated ClassLoader did the trick!
It's a little bit funny, because I generated the initial project using JBoss Tools in Eclipse. I would have expected that the jboss-app.xml was created automatically as it will be with seam-gen. Is this by intention or is it a bug?
You know, I've had very little luck with the IDE tools (including JBoss Dev Studio). I find that using the command line tools with the seam distribution work all the time.
