    How to deploy a .spring file right after a JAR

    Roy Sarango Newbie

      Hello everyone,

      I was wondering if anyone can help me out with the following issue:

      I'm migrating an application from Jboss 4.2 to 5.1 EAP. The application was built with EJB 2 and Spring 1.2. I've found some similar problems and tried all the possible alternative solutions without any luck.

      My project has the following structure:

      + myApp.ear

           + META-INF

                - application.xml

                - jboss-app.xml

                - MANIFEST.MF

           + myApp.jar

                + <package-structure> // classes go here.

                + META-INF

                     - ejb-jar.xml

                     - jboss.xml

                     - jbosscmp-jdbc-xml

                     - MANIFEST.MF

                + myApp-spring.spring

                     + META-INF

                          - MANIFEST.MF   

                          - myApp-spring.xml

           + myApp.war


      When deploying, I get this error message:


      org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name '<class-name>' defined in class path resource [applicationContext.xml]: Instantiation of bean failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.BeanInstantiationException: Could not instantiate bean class [<package-name>.<class-name>Delegate]: Constructor threw exception; nested exception is javax.ejb.EJBException: Could not instantiate bean.


      The weird thing here is that when deploying 1st. myApp.jar, 2nd myApp-spring.spring (getting the file out of the JAR) and 3rd myApp.war... putting these files (one by one) in <JBOSS_HOME>/jboss-as/server/<my-instance>/deploy, it works. But, putting the entire EAR project or the other 3 artifacts (one by one) in any other order then the specified, jboss server gives me the error pointed out above.


      This is my myApp-spring.xml file:


      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

      <!DOCTYPE beans PUBLIC "-//SPRING//DTD BEAN//EN" "http://www.springframework.org/dtd/spring-beans.dtd">


      <!-- ============== DataSource ============== -->

                <bean id="juiciosDataSource" class="org.springframework.jndi.JndiObjectFactoryBean">

                          <property name="jndiName">




      <!-- ============== DAO Layer (Persistence) ============== -->

      <bean id="tipoIdentificacionDAODelegate"

                          class="<bussiness-delegate-package>.<DAO-delegate-class>" />





      Any help will be appreciated!!!!!
