    Exception sending context initialized event to listener instance

    Olalekan Ogunleye Newbie

      Can somebody help me with this error. I only get this when I build my project wit Maven. I have also tried all possible solutions like replacing and removing the Jsf library, but I keep on getting the same problem. I have spent more than 20 hours on this and I am getting bored now. The stack trace is posted below. Thanks for your help in advance

          I have the exact same problem.  Increasing the log level doesn't seem to shed any more light on why the SeamApplicationFactory cannot be instantiated, and the CONFIGURATION FAILED! doesn't specify exactly what failed (though it's pretty clear that the ApplicationFactory could not be instantiated).


          No amount of swapping libraries from my server/lib to the ear!lib/ and the war!/WEB-INF/lib seems to make a difference. I'm attempting to launch my Seam application with JBoss 4.2.3.GA and Seam 1.2.1 using classloader isolation since I have two applications in the same application server that use different versions of the same classes (not my preference, but the reality I have to live with).


          Any ideas on how we can alleviate this problem?  Getting Seam 1.2.1 working in JBoss 4.2.3 has eaten up about 40 hours of my life so far and each step gets me incrementally closer to having it working until I slam into another obscure error like this (usually due to class loading or version incompatibilities).
