    Arjuna TX Manager Class Cast Exception

    Rupert Smith Newbie

      Hi,

      On JBoss 4.2.2GA, I get the following exception:

      java.lang.ClassCastException: com.arjuna.ats.jbossatx.jta.TransactionManagerDelegate cannot be cast to javax.transaction.TransactionManager
       at org.hibernate.transaction.JNDITransactionManagerLookup.getTransactionManager(JNDITransactionManagerLookup.java:23)
       at org.hibernate.impl.SessionFactoryImpl.<init>(SessionFactoryImpl.java:325)
       at org.hibernate.cfg.Configuration.buildSessionFactory(Configuration.java:1300)


      Another Forum post suggested this might be because of having the 'jta' jar in the .ear file I am trying to deploy. I checked and sure enough it was there as part of the hibernate dependencies I included. 'jta.jar' does not need to be in the .ear file as the app server already provides it. So I removed it, but I still get the above error.

      So now my dependency set of jars that are in my .ear file looks like (created with mvn dependency:tree):

      I'm confused by the class cast exception because I now expect that there should be only one copy of 'com.arjuna.ats.jbossatx.jta.TransactionManagerDelegate' and 'javax.transaction.TransactionManager' on the classpath and that the former does indeed extend the latter. Is this happening because I have included the Hibernate jars in my .ear file instead of using the container supplied version?

      Any help is appreciated, thanks.
