    classpath problems loading plugins deployed outside ear

    michele curioni Newbie

      Hi there,
      I have an application that loads a class at runtime. This class implements an interface.

      I packaged an deployed my app in a ear file, which contains the interface.
      The implementation of this interface is contained in an external jar file.

      I want to make the jar file containing the implementation available to my application, but I don't want to package it within the ear file, because I want to swap implementations without having to rebuild the whole application.

      Is it something possible?

      I tried to read every documentation available, but I couldn't find a solution.

      If I deploy the implementation jar in server/default/lib, then I get java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError because the interface is not visible.

      Thanks,
      Michele
