    Exclude org.apache.xalan module

    Shivanand Mutnale Newbie

      We are getting following exception in wildfly-10.1.0.Final

      Caused by: com.coverall.exceptions.ServiceException: org.apache.xml.dtm.ref.DTMManagerDefault cannot be cast to org.apache.xml.dtm.DTMManager .

       

      According to the classloading output using -verbose:class on startup of JBoss the following classes are loaded that way:

       

      [Loaded org.apache.xml.dtm.ref.DTMManagerDefault from jar:file:/E:/Wildfly/wildfly-10.1.0.Final/modules/system/layers/base/org/apache/xalan/main/xalan-2.7.1.jbossorg-2.jar!/]

      [Loaded org.apache.xml.dtm.ref.DTMManagerDefault from vfs:/E:/Wildfly/wildfly-10.1.0.Final/bin/content/../WEB-INF/lib/xalan-2.7.1.jar]

      [Loaded org.apache.xml.dtm.DTMManager from jar:file:/E:/Wildfly/wildfly-10.1.0.Final/modules/system/layers/base/org/apache/xalan/main/xalan-2.7.1.jbossorg-2.jar!/]

       

      These classes are currently loading form xalan-2.7.1.jbossorg-2.jar and we want these classes to be loaded from xalan-2.7.1.jar provided inside war file.

       

      Tried to exclude org.apache.xalan module by excluding the following widlfly modules in jboss-deployment-structure.xml file.But it is not working.

       

      <?xml version="1.0"?>
      <jboss-deployment-structure>
      <deployment>
      <exclusions>
      <module name="javax.servlet.jstl.api" />
      <module name="org.apache.santuario.xmlsec" />
      <module name="org.apache.ws.security" />
      <module name="org.jboss.as.appclient" />
      <module name="org.jboss.as.cli" />

      <module name="org.jboss.as.standalone" />
      <module name="org.jboss.as.webservices.server.integration" />
      <module name="org.apache.xerces" />
      <module name="org.apache.xalan" />
      </exclusions>
      <dependencies>
      <system>
      <paths>
      <path name="com/sun/org/apache/xerces/internal/jaxp/datatype"/>
      <path name="com/sun/jndi/rmi" />
      <path name="com/sun/jndi/rmi/registry"/>
      </paths>
      </system>
      </dependencies>
      </deployment>
      </jboss-deployment-structure>
      

       

      Please suggest us some solution by which classes would load only from xalan.2.7.1.jar  from WAR.

          Your application should be loading your own xalan classes even without the jboss-deployment-structure.xml descriptor, so I think this is a bug.  It may be fixed as of the upcoming WildFly 13 though; in that release, the way JAXP classes are resolved has been improved.

            As David says, you won't need a jboss-deployment-structure.xml to make this work and this should work fine out of the box. In fact I just added a test case locally to try this against WildFly 10.1.0, 12 and even latest upstream master. It works fine on all these versions. Can you post us the relevant code where you are dealing with the transform APIs and the complete exception stacktrace you see (it would be preferable if you can try this against WildFly 12).

             

            The test case I added is now in my repo here [1]. dmlloyd, we already have a XercesUsageTestCase in our basic testsuite which was added very early in AS7 days to verify usages of "tricky" libraries like this one. Do you think this new xalan usage test case is worth being added to the testsuite? If so, I can issue a PR which will contain that test case.

              Sure, I think this is a worthwhile addition, just to ensure we don't regress in this area.

                Thanks for the reply David and Jaikiran.

                 

                Following is the code that we are using to evaluate xpath expression.

                 

                DocumentBuilderFactory factory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
                    DocumentBuilder builder = factory.newDocumentBuilder();
                    Document doc = builder.parse(this.getClass().getClassLoader().getResourceAsStream("/test.xml"));
                    XPathFactory xPathFactory = XPathFactory.newInstance();
                    XPath xpath = xPathFactory.newXPath();
                    XPathExpression xPathExpression = xpath.compile("ISO//PassportSvcRs");
                    Element PassportSvcRsEl = (Element) xPathExpression.evaluate(doc,XPathConstants.NODE);
                    XPathExpression statusCdXpath = xpath.compile(".//Reports//Report//Status//StatusCd");
                

                 

                This code works fine when we have only xalan dependency in war file.

                The class loading log for this is as below:

                When we add other dependency such as cxf ,spring,hibernate etc... the code doesn't work.

                The class loading log for this is as below

                Also I have tried this in wildfly-12.0.0.Final.

                  "It may be fixed as of the upcoming WildFly 13 though; in that release, the way JAXP classes are resolved has been improved"

                   

                  We were able to reproduce the same in Wildfly 13. Can you provide the reference to this issue, if already created one to help track? Or should we create another issue with details in Wildfly 13?
