    JBoss update problems

    Adam G Newbie

      Hello JBoss Community,

       

      I have inherited a project that has long needed an upgrade.  It has been running on JBoss 4.0.2 with an embedded Tomcat 5.5.9.  Due to various vulnerablilities in the Tomcat version, the upgrade has become imperitive.

       

      I would like to update to AS 7 but our project is running EJB 2.0 technology which won't be supported in AS 7 until 7.1.  My attempts at deploying the project on AS 6.1.0 have been thrawted due to serveral incompatiblilities.  I have worked out many of the issues, but now I am stuck on an exception coming from a ClassCastException complaining about the struts.  Sadly the project uses an ancient version of struts (1.1).  Could this be the reason for the deployment issues?  If possible, it would be very nice to avoid a struts upgrade due to the vast amount of work that it would take to do so. Could this be fixed by using class loading isolation?  Here is the output that the server yeilds upon deployment of our .ear

          You may try JBoss 5.1, I suppose there are less problems.

           

          For this problem you might use classloading separation, do you have configured a class loader scope in your archive?

          Also it might happen that you have the same struts*.jar in different EAR/WAR files, if it picked up by different class loaders the class is the same but from classloader perspective it isn't and can not be cast.

          A solutiom might be that you drop the struts stuff from your archive and put it in the server/.../lib folder visible for all.

            Ah, I see what my mistake was.  When I was attempting to upgrade to AS 7, I found on one of the community discussions that it was necessary to place the classpath dependencies in the ear/lib.  When I found out that AS 7.0 wouldn't work for my project and tried JBoss 6.1 I didn't change the build so the struts library got placed in the ear/lib directory and in the war/WEB-INF/lib directory as well.  Thanks for the help
