    Error creating WebArchive

    Saif KHan Newbie



      I am using JSFUnit 2.0.0 + Arquillian to test jsf 2.0 + primefaces application. I am facing issues creating WebArchive. Following is my code to

      create WebArchive:



      WebArchive war = ShrinkWrap.create(WebArchive.class, "test.war")

                      .setWebXML(new File("src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/web.xml"))

                      .addPackage(Package.getPackage("com.permit.ui.arquillian")) // my test package

                      .addResource(new File("src/main/webapp", "index.xhtml"))

                      .addWebResource(EmptyAsset.INSTANCE, "beans.xml")

                      .addWebResource(new File("src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/faces-config.xml"), "faces-config.xml")

                      .addManifestResource(EmptyAsset.INSTANCE, ArchivePaths.create("beans.xml"));




      Now webapp contains lot of folders and resources. Is there any pattern way of adding resources like "src/main/webapp/**.*" Now when I add resource which requires lot of other resources I get following exception:



      com.gargoylesoftware.htmlunit.FailingHttpStatusCodeException: 500 Server Error for http://localhost:9090/test/ui/login.jsf




      Any help will be highly appreciated.

          Currently not possible, but we're aiming for it:





          The easiest solution for now would be to create a little util in your project to recursivly loop over folder X and add the files to the archive.

            Yeah, this is gonna be a popular one.  Let's get it into SW 1.0.0-alpha-13.

              You can also use archive merging workaround present at https://issues.jboss.org/browse/SHRINKWRAP-247

                Guys thank you for your quick reply it really helped. Currently I am doing it like this:


                public void addResourcesToWebArchive(String rootFolderPath, WebArchive war ){


                        File rootDir = new File(rootFolderPath);




                            String[] fileList = rootDir.list();


                            for(String filename : fileList){


                                if(!filename.equals(".svn") && !filename.equals("WEB-INF") ){


                                    if(new File(rootFolderPath+File.separatorChar+filename).isDirectory()){


                                        war.addDirectory(convertLocalToWebPath(rootFolderPath + File.separatorChar + filename));

                                        addResourcesToWebArchive(rootFolderPath + File.separatorChar + filename , war);




                                        war.addResource( new File( convertLocalToWebPath( rootFolderPath + File.separatorChar + filename ) ) );








                    public String convertLocalToWebPath(String localPath){


                        localPath = localPath.replace('\\', '/');

                        return localPath.substring(localPath.indexOf("src/"));

                  Hi, slightly off topic but this has stumped me for days!


                  I'm trying to do exactly the same as you,


                  Which version of primefaces are you using? My test works fine with standard components, soon as I switch these to the primefaces equivilant....BOOM!


                  I have tried 2.2.1 and 3.0-snap


                  Did you have any problems doing this?


                  Thanks in advance,

                    Could you open a new Thread and attach some context, ie. logging output of archive.toString(true) and the stacktrace?

                      Hi Andrew,


                      Sorry to reply so late. I am using jsf2 with primefaces 2.2.1. Right now I am busy in some other task and I have paused this activity.

                      But my archive is successfully created (with the code mentioned in my previous post) and deployed.
