    EARDeployer not finding *.jar(s) during startup.

    Chris Odom Newbie

      I am currently using the JBoss IDE 2 Beta which currently I have only out-of-memory problems with which easily solvable. I am publishing an EAR file to my local instance of JBoss4.0.5GA in /server/default/deploy. the EAR currently only contains a war and jar archives. The war uses the jar's classes (a common utilities jar) but upon startup this is all I see:

      13:37:16,256 INFO [EARDeployer] Init J2EE application: file:/C:/Java/jboss-4.0.5.GA/server/default/deploy/DataPipe.ear
      13:37:17,084 INFO [TomcatDeployer] deploy, ctxPath=/, warUrl=.../tmp/deploy/tmp30017DataPipe.ear-contents/datapipe-web-exp.war/
      13:37:17,225 INFO [EARDeployer] Started J2EE application: file:/C:/Java/jboss-4.0.5.GA/server/default/deploy/DataPipe.ear

      so basically the only thing getting deployed is the war file not the jar or I would think I would see the subdeployer JARDeployer running. Upon use of the web application the servler importing the common classes causes this to happen:

      I have tried placing the Utility jar in both the root /lib folder and the default server /lib folder but the Web application stills throughs this error. I have not been able to successfully bet my Web Application to see any classes outside of its current ClassLoader. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

          Okay I resolved this issue. Using the log4j appender for UCL I was able to track down that the utility jar I was deploying in my EAR was using a facet for Java set to version 6.0 and the container is running in a 5.0 JVM. Because of this the UnifiedClassLoader was not willing to load unmatched version of any classes into the JVM. Updating the facet to java 5.0 fixed this.
