    deploying shared jars in jboss5

    Roshan Newbie

      I originally posted this on the jboss5 forum at
      http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=138718

      They recommended that I post it here.

      So here is a recap of my problem



      Here is how I have my project setup.
      These are all maven 2 projects so dependency management is done automatically.

      I have a few projects that get compiled into jars which contains common functions.
      e.g. common.jar (Utility methods)

      I have a web app which depends on common, spring and a few other libs.

      My .m2/settings.xml file has a jboss.home variable defined.

      my webapp's pom file is set to create a lean war basically I don't want to include any of the dependent libs into the web-inf/lib folder.
      When I run mvn package on the webapp it copies all the dependencies
      into the JBOSS_HOME/server/default/deploy/common-libs folder.

      This setup works fine in 4.2.2.
      After getting 5.0 CR1, I changed the jboss.home variable in my settings.xml and jusr reran the maven scripts.

      I start up jboss and I get these errrors.

      I would appreciate it if somebody could help me with this.

      The recommendation is to put the jars into the JBOSS_HOME/server/default/lib folder.
      I specifically didn't do this cos I wanted the libraries used my application to stay separated from the libraries that come standard with jboss.
