    ClassDefNotFound when deploying MDB in EAR

    laverite Newbie

      I am trying to deploy an EAR to jboss3.2.2RC4 which includes my MDB in a jar. The MDB jar has a Manifest with Class-Path set for all necessary jars.

      However when I try and deploy my EAR I get the following exception:

      2004-06-18 17:29:23,065 WARN [org.jboss.ejb.EJBDeployer] Verify failed; continuing
      java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/jaxen/JaxenException
      at java.lang.Class.getDeclaredConstructors0(Native Method)
      at java.lang.Class.privateGetDeclaredConstructors(Class.java:1590)
      at java.lang.Class.getConstructor0(Class.java:1762).....

      But this class is in fact in one of tha jars within the EAR (jaxen-full.jar). I've even tried to remove jaxen-full.jar from the EAR to verify the MANIFEST entry is honored during deployment and jboss oes complains that it was unable to located the file indicated in the MANIFEST.

      I've also tried placing jaxen-full.jar in common lib directory. I've restarted JBOSS as well and repackaged and redeployed numerous of times while thinking this might be a class-loading issue. I can't seem to get around it. Any insight ts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
