    Unable to deploy drools-guvnor 5.5.0.Final on jboss eap 5.1

    Damien Sonnerat Newbie

      Drools-Guvnor (sponsored by redhat) proposes a war build for jboss eap 5.1 (http://www.jboss.org/drools/downloads download Guvnor 5.5.0.Final. Unzip guvnor-distribution-5.5.0.Final and find war binaries/guvnor-5.5.0.Final-jboss-eap-5.1.war)


      This war should works out-of-the-box without any configuration (see "Chapter 11. Installation" in inline documentation http://docs.jboss.org/drools/release/5.5.0.Final/drools-guvnor-docs/html/ch11.html)


      When we deploy this war on jboss eap 5.1 we first got the following error:

      java.lang.RuntimeException: mapped-name is required for BeanManager of deployment guvnor-5.5.0.Final-jboss-eap-5.1.war

           at org.jboss.web.tomcat.service.injection.WebResourceHandler.loadXmlResourceEnvRefs(WebResourceHandler.java:287)

           at org.jboss.web.tomcat.service.injection.WebResourceHandler.loadXml(WebResourceHandler.java:325) …


      To solve this problem we open the war file and suppress the following configuration in file WEB-INF/web.xml:


      <resource-env-ref><!-- Needed to make weld/arquillian work on tomcat6, jetty6 and jetty7 -->


           <resource-env-ref-type> javax.enterprise.inject.spi.BeanManager </resource-env-ref-type>



      It seems to make sense since the comment indicates that this specific configuration is made for tomcat6, jetty6 and jetty7

      So doing the following error was obtained:


      java.lang.RuntimeException: java.io.IOException: Child not found guvnor-5.5.0.Final-jboss-eap-5.1.war/WEB-INF/seam-beans.xml/ for FileHandler@27406307 …


      And resolved by adding an seam-beans.xml file in WEB-INF. This file contains only root xml node (no configuration in it).


      This time, the server launches the application without errors.

      However when we try to use guvnor (http://localhost:8080/guvnor-5.5.0.Final-jboss-eap-5.1) the following next error occurs:


      Caused by: java.lang.IllegalStateException: CDI hasn't been properly started. Make sure your IDE classpath is in sync with the real maven classpath. The classpath should include weld-servlet.

           at org.drools.guvnor.server.SecurityServiceServlet.getCurrentUser(SecurityServiceServlet.java:70)


      org.drools.guvnor.server.SecurityServiceServlet.getCurrentUser method is:

      public UserSecurityContext getCurrentUser() {

           if (securityService == null) { // This is the first method called by the client. // If CDI hasn't kicked in (theoretically impossible...), throw a readable exception

                throw new IllegalStateException("CDI hasn't been properly started.\n" + " Make sure your IDE classpath is in sync with the real maven classpath.\n" + " The classpath should include weld-servlet.");


           return securityService.getCurrentUser();



      securityService should be injected by WELD. But the injection is not done. We are struck at this point.

      Jboss eap 5.1 is imposed by our firm, we cannot upgrade to a newer one.


      Note that to avoid having error:


      java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.jboss.logmanager.LogContext.getAttachment(Ljava/lang/String;Lorg/jboss/logmanager/Logger$AttachmentKey;)Ljava/lang/Object;

           at org.jboss.solder.logging.internal.JBossLogManagerProvider.doGetLogger(JBossLogManagerProvider.java:52)


      We also had to replace jboss-as/lib/jboss-logmanager.jar with a newer one.


      Any help to make drools-guvnor 5.5.0.Final works on jboss eap 5.1 will be welcome
