    ArrayStoreException: sun.reflect.annotation.TypeNotPresentExceptionProxy

    Benjamin Seyinbour Expert

      Using: Linux/JEE 5/GateIn-3.1.0-CR01/JSF 1.2


      Until yesterday, my EAR application was running without any problem, but I am now having the  problem below.   It seems to stem from my EJB project deployed inside an ear, which also includes a war file, EJB Client file  and other utility files. have used TRACE  to dig into it and also looked into the AnnotationParser class but still have no clue what exactly the problem is. It refers to annotations but which one and in which file – I have over 500 EJB files with annotations.  Any suggestions would be welcomed?


      Thanks.

          Hello

           

          Were you able to resolve this issue? I am facing the same problem when deploying an MDB in JBOSS 5.

          Please help me if you have any leads into this.

            Please post more details about your application, the exact JBoss AS server, the Java vendor and version and also the entire exception stacktrace. A bit more details about when this happens will also be useful.

              Hello

               

              I am trying to deploy a simple MDB (attached herewith), packaged as a jar into Jboss 5.1.0. I am running the server on Mac with Hotspot JVM. The Java version used is 1.6. I have created this MDB in eclipse and has run it directly from the server. Please find attached the complete server log.

                Where is that org.springframework.ejb.interceptor.SpringBeanAutowiringInterceptor class located? Looks like it's missing from your application packaging.

                  I've got exactly the same problem. Did you find a solution?...

                    The real issue is, there's some annotation whose value uses a class which isn't in the classpath. For example:

                     

                    @SomeAnnotation (value = SomeClassNotInClasspath.class)
                    public class SomeClass
                    

                     

                    You'll have to make sure that the "SomeClassNotInClasspath" is made available in the classpath (for example, by packaging it in your app).

                      Thanks for the answer jaikiran.

                       

                      I use @Interceptors(SpringBeanAutowiringInterceptor.class) on my EJB3. But the problem that's i've got "SomeClassNotInClasspath" in my ear's librairies...

                        Did you find the solution for this?

                         

                        I have the same problem. In my app there is a SLSB and my intention is to inject it some beans using Spring, so I added the interceptor line "@Interceptors(SpringBeanAutowiringInterceptor.class)".

                         

                        @Stateless(name="ejb/greeter")

                        @Interceptors(SpringBeanAutowiringInterceptor.class)

                        public class GreeterBean implements Greeter{

                         

                            public String sayHi() {

                                return "Hi!!! Hello World !!!";

                            }

                        ...

                         

                        It then started to throw java.lang.ArrayStoreException: sun.reflect.annotation.TypeNotPresentExceptionProxy.

                        I googled and saw answers as the one jaikiran gave you, but if I remove the '@interceptors...' line and add one line using SpringBeanAutowiringInterceptor only to see if the class is reached, the class is found.

                         

                        @Stateless(name="ejb/greeter")
                        public class GreeterBean implements Greeter{

                                SpringBeanAutowiringInterceptor sb = new SpringBeanAutowiringInterceptor();
                                return "Hi!!! Hello World !!!";
                            }

                          I think I got it: it was WTP/JBoss not deploying the application.xml file from the ear. The weird thing is that Maven generates it every time, but the file not always (sometimes yes, sometimes no) is deployed to JBoss. It doesn't even work copying the file by hand, I have to remove de app from the server and redeploy it.

                           

                          Any explanation?

                            I'm getting the same exception. In my case, the problem seems to be the SpringLifecycleInterceptor interceptor class. Only after adding the snowdrop-deployers.jar to my .ear the problem dissapear although I have already install snowdrop in the modules folder, and then added the extension org.jboss.snowdrop to my configuration.

                             

                            I suppose adding the snowdrop jar to my ear isn't the right solution, so I'l glad to hear to the right one!

                              Seeing the same exception with JBoss EAP 6.1.alpha (AS 7.2).

                               

                              Isn't this a bug as in it's not even telling which class is the problem? It just says

                               

                              java.lang.ArrayStoreException: sun.reflect.annotation.TypeNotPresentExceptionProxy

                               

                              which doesn't really help much.
