    Axis ClassCastException

    flp05 Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I'm having some problems with axis on Jboss AS 7.

       

      I have this error when consuming an external web service.

                java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.axis.attachments.AttachmentsImpl cannot be cast to org.apache.axis.attachments.Attachments
      

       

      After read other posts about this subject, I tried to move the "axis.jar" from my "lib" folder in the project to "JbossHome/standalone/lib/ext/". The error changed, but Jboss was no more able to load axis.

       

      Do anyone knows what I'm doing wrong, or what I have to do for axis to work in Jboss ???

       

       

       

      Thanks in advance,

      Luís

          Unless you're using something extremely Axis specific, you do not need it at all.

           

          JBoss AS 7.x (and many of its predecessors) contains complete JAX-RPC and JAX-WS web service client and server implementations.

            Thanks Stephen for your help, but unfortunately that didn't solve my problem.

             

            When I remove axis.jar from my project, I got this error:  ERROR - The method @ doesn't exists in the class @ or its execution is not allowed by reflect.

             

            This is the complete stacktrace, I don't get anything else.

             

            Thanks again.

              Hi,

               

              can you post output of

              jar tf <name-of-your-deployment>

              this will show us structure of your application.

                Sorry Tomaz, but I can't do that. I can't share any project details or code or I can lose my job, sorry

                But, I really apreciate you trying to help me, thanks.

                 

                So, I did a litle more debug on the error and I found out, that this error:

                happens in this line:

                  it is not code just strucutre but i understand your concerns.

                   

                  can you then just post names of all jar you have in lib folder(s) of your application and exclude all "your" jars, that i think would not be to delicate to share.

                      Is there a way for me to force Jboss to use my "axis.jar" and ignore it's own libraries without having the conflict that I had initially?

                        drop about all xml libs you can find from the deployment ;-) and all drivers jars and connection pool jars. If you really need to, you can filter modules with the jboss-deployment-structure.xml but it should be sparingly used.

                          This makes sense, but has something to do with the error? Doesn't seem like.

                              Thanks Tomaz.

                               

                              I did what you recommended and I have to say that it was a great help. Thanks for the trouble. Now I have:

                              But that don't solve my problem.

                              I still got the error:

                               

                              this error:

                               

                              When I remove axis.jar from my project, I got this error:  ERROR - The method @ doesn't exists in the class @ or its execution is not allowed by reflect.

                               

                              in this line:

                               

                                  private static org.apache.axis.description.TypeDesc typeDesc =

                                      new org.apache.axis.description.TypeDesc(MYCLASS.class, true);

                                Can you show the complete stacktrace?

                                  This is the complete stacktrace. I don't get anything else. :S

                                   

                                   

                                  I'm getting suspicious about the use of "MYCLASS.class". Because the error indicates that some class may not exist or be call with reflection.

                                   

                                  I verified and the class exists in a jar deployed with the application. So, maybe, the problem is when calling this class using reflection "MYCLASS.class".

                                    Can you attach the source and place a breakpoint there? There is probably an underlying exception being swallowed.
