I'm attemtping to achieve isolated classloading for individual war based applications (without much success) in a JBoss 4.0.4GA environment. I understand that these issues have changed since at least the 3.x days as well as perhaps again since the 4.0.2 daysfrom what I have found in the wiki at http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=ClassLoadingConfiguration.
Anyway, I am hoping to have entirely self sufficient war applications that do not use anything such as the MyFaces and log4j libs from the parent classloaders. From the wiki, I have tried the following. Here is what I have in my:
In each war I have added a WEB-INF/jboss-web.xml with the following content:
However, this is not providing isolation for me (as adding MyFaces and/or log4j jars of different versions to my WEB-INF/lib causes conflicts symptomatic of non-isolated class loading).
Am I missing something unique in 4.0.4 or otherwise missing something? How can this desired behavior be achieved?
