    ClassNotFoundException when starting WildFly 10

    leo chen Newbie

      I am starting my web application with WildFly version 10. Now I am getting the ClassNotFoundException during the startup.

       

      I noticed the class (a servlet class) is configured in web.xml in the web.war (at /my-web.war/WEB-INF), and the servlet class is in my jar at /my.ear.

       

      The structure is like:
      my.ear

          -- my-web.war

                -- WEB-INF

                      -- web.xml

          -- my.jar

       

      This ever worked fine in JBoss EAP 6.4.0. I have not changed anything on the configuration yet. But now I see ClassNotFoundException when trying to migrate to WildFly 10.

       

      The jboss-deployment-structure is like below:

      <jboss-deployment-structure>
        <ear-subdeployments-isolated>false</ear-subdeployments-isolated>
      </jboss-deployment-structure>
      

       

      Below is the error. Please advise.

          Where is the com.DemoServlet.class located?

            it is located at my.jar, as I said in the first time. This worked in JBoss EAP 6.4.0. I did not change anything on the configuration or file location.

              Additional information for reference:

              when I uncommented the DemoServlet configuration in web.xml, other servlet classes which are configured in web.xml will be reported not found errors while they are all located in my.jar.

                The jboss-deployment-structure is like below:

                1. <jboss-deployment-structure> 
                2.   <ear-subdeployments-isolated>false</ear-subdeployments-isolated> 
                3. </jboss-deployment-structure> 


                If the my.jar is just a plain jar without any EE components bundled in it, then it won't be considered a sub deployment and its classes won't be visible to the other sub deployments. If it's a plain jar, move it to a lib folder within the .ear. Something like my.ear/lib/my.jar. That way, it will be considered a library and will be available to all sub deployments of that .ear.

                  Hi Jaikiran, thanks for your reply. Bad news is I have tried that but it does not work. Anything else to advise?

                  • 6. Re: ClassNotFoundException when starting WildFly 10
                    jaikiran pai Master

                    Move that jar to the lib folder of the .ear and then post the output of:

                     

                    jar -tf myear.ear

                     

                    and also the output of

                     

                    jar -tf my.jar

                     

                    and please paste the latest exception stacktrace

                          Hi Jaikiran, I think this problem has gone. I added the cxf dependency in jboss-deployment-structure xml as below and the error is fixed.

                           

                          <dependencies>
                            <module name="org.apache.cxf" export="true" />
                            <module name="org.apache.cxf.impl" export="true" />
                          </dependencies>
                          

                           

                          So thanks for your advice. I will close this thread as resolved for now.

                            Hi Jaikiran,

                                              I am having a similar problem regarding class not found. In wildfly 10 application, My java class use some external jar files provided by Business Objects and when I am trying to call the class I get the below error.

                            I have added the jar files need into a lib folder in custom-ejb-11.2.0.jar and added Manifest classpath entries. But still its not able to find the external jar files.

                             

                            My structure is as below

                             

                            app-custom.ear

                                    /lib

                                   /custom-ejb-11.2.0.jar

                                      runtime-lib/

                                      a class file

                              The JAR files would need to be in the app-custom.ear/lib directory. The JAR directory structure does not have a lib directory.

                                Hi James,

                                                    Thank you for the reply. If I have multiple sub deployments do I have to add the jars to modules structure and add module dependencies in the jboss-deployment-structure.xml file? Also I am creating the jar file using maven build wonder if I need to add dependent jar's to the manifest file classpath?

                                 

                                I added the jars to the lib folder initially and unfortunately they are still not visible.

                                 

                                Thanks,

                                Hemanth

                                  It all depends on what type of deployment you're using. If you're deploying an EAR then by default all sub-deployments will have a dependency on the libraries in the EAR/lib directory. See Class Loading in WildFly for more details. The manifest entries are also addressed in the documentation.
