    Myfaces error (IllegalStateException) in eap6

    bes.comcom Newbie

      Some background:  I've been working for a few weeks now converting an old jboss 4.0.3 application to AS7 (more specifically eap6.1).

      I've worked through all of the basic configuration changes (jpa, jms, jca, etc) with very few problems.  I'm not working with the web layer.

       

      This application uses myfaces/tomahawk that I'm converting from jsf1 to jsf2.

      I've set up the web context to use the jboss param org.jboss.jbossfaces.WAR_BUNDLES_JSF_IMPL = true and I've embedded the myfaces jarfiles in /WEB_INF/lib

       

      I am getting the following error:

       

      JBWEB000306: Exception sending context destroyed event to listener instance of class org.apache.myfaces.webapp.StartupServletContextListener: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Could not find backup for factory javax.faces.application.ApplicationFactory.

      Any pointers on where to start looking for a root cause?  I've tried everything I personally could think of :/

          Hi,

           

          7.2 / eap 6.1 has new way how to use myfaces.

           

          see https://community.jboss.org/wiki/DesignOfAS7Multi-JSFFeature for more info.

            I read that entire thread before even coming here.  It seems that stan had some reservations of this working fully with the new module layout, etc.

            That was why I went with the WAR_BUNDLES_JSF_IMPL option.  So thank you, but that didn't really answer my question as the bundled into the war is still a valid method currently.

              Show me your web.xml.

               

              There is something wrong because it really should not be loading classes from jboss-jsf-api_2.1_spec-2.1.18.Final.jar with WAR_BUNDLES_JSF_IMPL.

               

              That being said, it is still possible because that module is available from the web subsystem and we are in the process of tearning down the context.  This brings up another question.  Why is MyFaces creating a FacesContext during the context destroyed event?

                  I have been scouring the internet/chat for weeks with this same issue. I'm surprised I didn't find this post earlier. Indeed, JBOSS "should not be loading classes from jboss-jsf-api_2.1_spec-2.1.18.Final.jar with WAR_BUNDLES_JSF_IMPL" and yet is is for some reason.

                  I have not been able to get my application enabled with myfaces components. I've tried the bundled jar, everything but the bundled jar, many different configurations, finally after talking my situation through with someone on xChat, I was told to ambush stsilvert.

                  I am very interested in Stan Silvert's take on this situation. How can we get MyFaces to run on JBOSS 7.2!?

                  Again, this link: https://community.jboss.org/wiki/DesignOfAS7Multi-JSFFeature does not provide the solution.

                  Could it be that somewhere in some file/jar, the JSF versions don't match?

                  Thank you very much for your time.

                    Looking further up the error tree, I found this error.  I wonder if it is related.

                     

                    SEVERE [javax.faces] (ServerService Thread Pool -- 78) Application was not properly initialized at startup, could not find Factory: javax.faces.application.ApplicationFactory. Attempting to find backup.

                     

                    So it looks like the error I originally posted is only being thrown because this line here says its off looking for a backup factory.  Could this be a configuration issue?  If so, I've read nothing in the documentation that leads me to what it could be.

                      I know why it was creating a destroy event, it was trying to bring the app back down. Just above that it threw the same Exception during the Initialize Event

                      But as you can see, the jboss-jsf-api_2.1_spec-2.1.18.Final.jar:2.1.18.Final is still in the stack, this is odd (as you mentioned).

                        wow, don't know why I didn't look for this sooner.  In my standalone-full.xml the following line was in there:

                                <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:jsf:1.0"/>

                         

                        It was an empty element, but it was obviously causing a conflict.  As soon as I removed it the Factory method was called fine on the myfaces impl and the context loaded.

                         

                        Is this a bug that that statement (in the config by default) doesn't work correctly with WAR_BUNDLES_JSF_IMPL?

                          Although removing that line did help, I now receive this error:

                          Also, implementing Stan Silvert's help of making myfaces the default JSF implementation (via https://issues.jboss.org/browse/AS7-5649) did not affect the above error.

                          Any ideas as to why that would be?

                          Is there more to "bundling the war" then importing jars into my library in Netbeans? They are definitely called that way, just wanted to make sure. I've tried manually dropping the jars into WEB_INF/lib with no different effect.

                          Thank you

                           

                          bes, what jars do you have where? I am trying to get myfaces working on 7.2 (eap 6.1 nightly) with myfaces-bundle-2.1.11, tomahawk 1.1.9, and commons beanutils/codec/collections/digester/logging
