    Ignoring ClassLoader Roots

    Andrew Rubinger Master

      In doing some prototyping on AS Embedded, I've run into an issue where the bootstrap deployables in AS fail on definition of explicit roots:

      <classloader name="aop-classloader" xmlns="urn:jboss:classloader:1.0" export-all="NON_EMPTY" import-all="true">
       <root>${jboss.lib.url}jboss-aop-asintegration-core.jar</root>
      ...etc
       </classloader>


      Ales kindly provided me with a NoopClassLoaderFactory:

      http://anonsvn.jboss.org/repos/jbossas/projects/jboss-cl/trunk/classloading-vfs/src/test/java/org/jboss/test/classloading/vfs/metadata/xml/support/NoopClassLoaderFactory.java

      ...which has overridden:

      @XmlTransient
       public List<BeanMetaData> getBeans()
       {
       return Collections.emptyList();
       }


      Though what's needed is an implementation that won't allow "roots" to be specified, so I've rewritten this in a (as of yet uncommitted) implementation in the new jboss-embedded-core project. This will be in SVN once I've got the proper JIRA rights to organize up and keep things documented.

      Perhaps MC wants this code instead?
