    How to share additional libraries, Jboss 5.1.0GA?

    Akaine Harga Novice

      Hello

       

      I know this is one the most common questions, still after an extensive search I couldn't find the answer.

       

      The problem is simple:

      I've got one or more EAR apps and their WAR components use external libraries (richfaces, commons, etc.). While I deploy the EARs with their respective libs inside I have no problems but as soon as I try to put at least one lib inside any of known shared dirs (common/lib/ or server/default/lib/) I can't even start the AS without admin-console app throwing exceptions. Needless to say my apps won't deploy as well after this.

       

      Normally I could live with all my libs staying inside the WARs. But since I frequently redeploy the applications remotely and JBoss fails to wait until I upload them entirely trying to deploy partially uploaded EARs I was thinking to share the used libs so I could limit myself to uploading the pure compiled projects which weight ten times less than my libs.

       

      I don't know if this is a normal behavior but even with one richfaces jar inside any of two previously mentioned dirs (no EARs deployed, clean Jboss installation) I get:
