I'm currently trying to migrate our application from jboss5 to jboss6 and I'm running into some issues.
My first try was with jboss6 CR1:
We have some web services (EJB3 endpoints) and they all have @HandlerChain declaration (we use this to do the XML validation since the built-in SOAP validation didn't work on Jboss5) and it all worked fine with jboss5 and jbossws native 3.3.1 GA.
Now with jboss6 CR1, since it is shipped with jbossws-CXF 3.4.1 my @HandlerChain declaration does not seem to be valid any more (btw, I was not able to find any clear document on own to declare a handler chain with CXF).
So I've decided to use jbossws-native-3.4.0 (the latest version available) and I worked fine: I was able to have my web services running just like with jboss5
Today, I've downloded jboss6 Final with CXF 3.4.1
18:32:43,489 INFO [AbstractServerConfig] JBoss Web Services - Stack CXF Server 3.4.1.GA
and just like for jboss6 CR1, I tried to deploy jbossws native.
But this time I get:
18:34:46,515 INFO [AbstractServerConfig] JBoss Web Services - Native Server 3.4.0.GA
18:34:46,523 ERROR [AbstractKernelController] Error installing to PreInstall: name=WSDescriptorDeployer state=Real: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/jboss/wsf/spi/metadata/DescriptorParser

Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.jboss.wsf.spi.metadata.DescriptorParser
at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:202) [:1.6.0_23]
So, jboss6 CR1 comes with Stack CXF Server 3.4.0.CR3 and I can install Native Server 3.4.0.GA
But, jboss6 Final comes with CXF 3.4.1 and I cannot install Native Server 3.4.0.GA...
Can someone please explain me:
- how to install jbossws native in jboss6?
- where do I get jbossws native 3.4.1 (is it available? 3.4.0 native or CXF are the latest available at http://www.jboss.org/jbossws/downloads )?
- how do I declare HandlerChain with CXF?
my EJB have @HandlerChain(file = "/META-INF/soapHandler/handler-chain.xml")
and the handler-chain.xml is as follow:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
