    How to add additional jars to the deployed war

    Y E Newbie

      Hello,


      I have a seam application which is deployed to JBoss as a war.
      I used JBoss Tools to generate the project and that added all the builders/launchers that do the job of building and deploying the application to JBoss AS.
      I need to add some additional jars, but they do not get deployed in the war file by the standard builders.
      One way out of this would be to create my own ant build.xml that will do the job of compiling, building and deploying.


      I was wondering if there's a way of adding these jars (or a user library for that matter) to the standard builder (I'm not sure which builder that is, to be honest), instead of creating a custom ant script.
      Thanks.

          How did you add those additional jars? Did you copy them in WEB-INF\lib?

            In my eclipse project I have them included in my build path. But they don't get copied in WEB-INF/lib authomatically as the rest of the seam jars by the builders(or whatever process that deploys the war to JBoss). That's what my question is about - how to copy them authomatically when the war file is built and deployed to JBoss.

              You configure that at Project Properties -> Java EE Module Dependencies. In that place you will see a table with all your referenced .jars, if the checkbox for each .jar is checked, the .jar is copied to WEB-INF\lib

                  Thanks Francisco,
                  That's exactly what I was after.

                    I need a  real name Newbie
                    Hello, I'm try to copy my jar file to myproject.ear\lib, and I have in my build.xml

                    `<copy todir="${ear.dir}/lib">
                                <fileset dir="${lib.dir}">

                                    <include name="myjar1.jar"/>
                                    <include name="myjar2.jar"/>
                                </fileset>
                    </copy>`

                    I don't know how to put my jars files into deployed-jars-ear.list.
                    All files are copied to myproject\lib , but myjars files not.

                    Can you help-me?

                    thanks.

                      Hello,


                      this works for me:



                      <copy todir="${ear.dir}/lib">
                        <fileset dir="${lib.dir}">
                            <include name="*.jar"/>
                        </fileset>
                      </copy>

                        You configure that at Project Properties -> Java EE Module Dependencies.

                        I can't find Java EE Module Dependencies in my Eclipse Project Properties (Eclipse Galileo 3.5.2). I see Resource, Builders, CDI Settings, Hibernate Settings, Java Build Path, etc. but not Java EE Module Dependencies.


                        I tried changing my build.xml file from:


                        <copy todir="${ear.dir}/lib">
                           <fileset dir="${lib.dir}">
                              <includesfile name="deployed-jars-ear.list"/>
                              <exclude name="icefaces-ahs.jar" if="icefaces.present"/>
                           </fileset>
                        </copy>



                        to:


                        <copy todir="${ear.dir}/lib">
                          <fileset dir="${lib.dir}">
                              <include name="*.jar"/>
                          </fileset>
                        </copy>



                        The copying worked fine, but then I get a deployment error.

                          Try editting deployed-jars-ear.list xor deployed-jars-war.list(textfiles) after you copy your jar(s) in ${lib.dir} (within your eclipse project).
