    JBoss 5.1 GA + JPA 2

    Rajan Desai Newbie

      Can some one please help me deploy my JPA2 application on JBoss 5.1?

      Going to JBoss 6 is not an option since it is not GA yet.


      I can deploy my app in jetty/tomcat but not in JBoss... Never thought JBoss will be so rigid


      Thanks in advance for your help.

          I tried deploying this application in JBoss 6.0 CR1, but was not successful... I get the following error:

            Are you packaging any jar file(s) containing javax.transaction.* in your application packaging? If yes, then remove those jars from the application packaging.

              Yes, taking out jta1.1.jar from my war file removed the exceptions listed above (JBoss 6.0 deployment). But now I see the following errors:


              09:49:32,062 ERROR [AbstractKernelController] Error installing to Start: name=persistence.unit:unitName=gateway-2.2.4-SNAPSHOT.war#ApplicationEntityManager state=Create: java.lang.RuntimeException: Specification violation [EJB3 JPA] - You have not defined a non-jta-data-source for a RESOURCE_LOCAL enabled persistence context named: ApplicationEntityManager
                  at org.jboss.jpa.impl.deployment.PersistenceUnitInfoImpl.<init>(PersistenceUnitInfoImpl.java:133) [:2.0.0]


              The current war file works fine in Jetty or Tomcat. Is <non-jata-data-source> a mandatory element in persistence.xml... I didn't think so.


              Does any one have ideas to get JPA 2 application working on JBoss 5.1?

                I managed to deploy my JPA 2 application on JBoss 51 successfully. I can successfuly deploy and access DB after making the following changes.

                (Please let me know if you see any issues with this solution)


                1. Add support for persistence 2 schema
                  • copy persistence_2_0.xsd to <JBOSS_51_INSTALL_DIR>/docs/schema directory
                  • Modify  <JBOSS_51_INSTALL_DIR>/server/default/deployers/metadata-deployer-jboss-beans.xml  to add the following lines after persistence_1_0.xsd entry:

                2. Once JBoss 51 installation is enabled for JPA 2, the following changes are needed in the JPA 2 project.
                  • Add jboss-classloading.xml file in src/main/webapp/WEB-INF directory. Add the following lines to this file.
                    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
                    <classloading xmlns="urn:jboss:classloading:1.0"

                    The above change ensures that the classes from your WEB-INF/LIB directory are loaded before the classes that come with JBoss. Ensure that all JPA 2 and Hibernate related jar files are included/packaged with your application (war/ear). Here is the list of jars included in my application

                  Thank you Rajan. I will try your method very soon and let everyone know the result. I have been struggling to deploy JPA 2 (with EJB 2.1) on JBoss for a couple of weeks but always failed. I used JBoss 6.0 CR1 but am hoping to use the final version as soon as possible. Why don't you try JBoss 6 as the GA will be available this month IMHO ?.

                    Jose Ferrer Newbie

                    I did something like this but it doesn't quite seem to work.  Just in case it makes a difference, I'm deploying a WAR to EAP 5.0.1 and I can't switch to JBoss 6.0.


                    With the jboss-classloading.xml file exactly as yours, everything appears to work.  However the Hibernate version in the log is 3.3 and if I try to use EntityManager.detach() (new for JPA 2) I get a method not found exception at runtime.  This leads me to believe that the EntityManagerFactory I get from calling Persistence.createEntityManagerFactory() is getting created by the Hibernate 3.3 that is in JBoss, not the one in the WAR file.  If I add a domain="SomeOtherDomain" setting to the classloading tag (I don't remember where I got the idea) I get class cast exceptions from org.hibernate.ejb.HibernatePersistence to javax.persistence.spi.PersistenceProvider.  I think that's because it is trying to cast across classloaders.  However, if I create my own Ejb3Configuration and get an EntityManagerFactory through it, then I see in the log output that Hibernate 3.5.1 is being used and EntityManager.detach() works just fine.

                        If you are still having this issue, I managed to solve a similar one by following instructions from here: http://java.dzone.com/articles/ejb3-jpa-error-when-migrating

                          I have build a workaround for solving this problem.
