    Wildfly 8.1 and Infinispan class path during start up (multi module ear) - Class not found

    Paris Apostolopoulos Newbie

      Hello I have the following issue. I am trying to deploy a multi-module ear application



      • ejb-jar-cache.jar
      • ejb-services.jar
      • common-services.jar
      • rest-war.war


      My ejb-jar-cache is a top level ejb jar deployment that actually uses Infinispan to initialize a cache manager , currently using a @Startup EJB


      public class CacheInitializer {
          private static final Logger logger = LoggerFactory.getLogger(CacheInitializer.class);
          private EmbeddedCacheManager manager;
          private BasicCache<String,Object> environmentCache;
          private void createManager(){
                  manager = new DefaultCacheManager("infinispan-config.xml");


      I am not not bundling any Infinispan jars along, my dependency is set to provided




      I am also bundling within the ejb-jar-cache.jar (within the META-INF) a jboss-deployment-structure.xml

                    <module name="org.infinispan.commons" export="TRUE" />
                    <module name="org.infinispan" export="TRUE" />


      Question1: It is the following xml right? I am not sure if the meta-inf property or the export="TRUE" should be used


      Question 2: It seems that Wildfly 8.1 does not pick this up.


      Error getting reflective information for xxxx.impl.CacheInitializer with ClassLoader ModuleClassLoader for Module \"deployment.eBanking-ear.ear.eBanking-cache.jar:main\" from Service Module Loader
          Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/infinispan/manager/EmbeddedCacheManager
          Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.infinispan.manager.EmbeddedCacheManager from [Module \"deployment.eBanking-ear.ear.eBanking-cache.jar:main\" from Service Module Loader]"},
          "JBAS014771: Services with missing/unavailable dependencies" => [


      Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated? I am actually trying to port from Websphere to Wildfly so..it is for a good cause . Eventually the above setup in Websphere (but with infinispan bundled in the ear) works.



      UPDATE (could not add reply)

      The jboss-deployment-descriptor did not work unfortunately, either placing it in the EAR level or in the EJB-jar level. Only by updating the generated MANIFEST of the ejb-cache, using the following maven config, I was able to make Wildfly during deployment to pick up my infinispan class /config


                                          <Dependencies>org.infinispan export</Dependencies>

      Is the jboss-deployment-descriptor fully supported in Wildfly81 or my xml was sort of invalid? There are a lot of references out there about it. has anything changed with the latest version of the server?
