    missing /lib directory in server/default confiog dir on AS5

    William Woodman Master

      tried downloading the nex AS5. Unpick and try and run with default config (what most people would do). and it errors when run and wont start - primary reason seems to a missing /lib directory.

      seems to be a problem in the jdk and non jdk downloads both

      I presume this is bug in packaging ?

          Since you mention you downloaded the "next AS5", i am assuming you are talking about JBoss-5 GA :)

          In the GA version of JBoss-5, there have been changes in the folder structure, especially the lib folders. The lib folder under each server profile (default, all etc...) is now empty and all the jar files are now moved to a %JBOSS_HOME%/common/lib folder. This common/lib will act as a parent to all server/< serverName>/lib folders. If you want to add any jar for a specific server profile, then you can add it to the %JBOSS_HOME%/server/< serverName>/lib folder.

          I have downloaded the GA and it works without any issues on my setup. So the folder refactoring should not be any issue. Which URL did you use to download the server? There are 2 versions of the AS - one specifically for JDK6 and the other for JDK5. Which one did you download and which JDK version are you using. See this related FAQ http://www.jboss.org/community/docs/DOC-12933

          If none of this solves the issue, please post additional details including the Operating system, the Java version and the entire console logs including the exception stacktrace.

          P.S: There is a dedicated forum for JBoss AS5 here http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewforum&f=287

              first sorry for not being precise - yes i am refering the as5.0.0ga

              thye problem i have is experienced on both AS downloads -
              the one called jboss-5.0.0.GA-jdk6.zip, and the one called jboss-5.0.0.GA.zip


              i normally fire things up on eclipse, however it fails from command line also. If i edit the config to not run default but use server instead it comes up okay - however i then seem to be having problems with my simple seam 2.1.1 code project which claims it cant see the org.hibernate.validator package. This was working fine under as5CR2 so i can only think it sthe library shift also.


              my machine is running java jre1.6.0_07, under windows XP

              running latest nightly build of jboss tools, with seam 2.1.1

              heres the output from running from the command line in dos window

                How did you unzip the zip file? Did you by any chance use an option that prevents empty directories from being unzipped? The server/default/lib directory appears in the zip file, but is empty. JBoss AS requires that directory, even if it is empty.

                  no its not in the zip at all

                  I have reopened in winzip - and filtered on path. There is no default/lib directory at all.

                  There is for some of the other configs like standard and all, but default and web contain no /lib directories.

                  I just followed the links from sourceforge.

                  my as5-jdk6 zip is 106,409KB in my explorer view

                  Will try another download now and see what i get

                      i have just ried adding manually the empty /lib directory below the server/default and restart at command line and it then runs to startup.

                      Can someone check the source build tree and confirm that the distro ought to have an empty /lib under server/default.

                      I have tried two mirrors with same problem so far.


                      In addition to those who rely on jboss tools, my version (nightly build) hasnt caught up with the new apporach for as5. when you create a version 5 runtime in eclipse, it doesnt include files from the new common/lib directory. What this means is that seam code that used to compile as it could find hibernate validator etc fails the code build as its no longer in the path setup by the server runtime.

                      I had to manually create a new user library of my own and include the common/lib jars in that, and add to the compile path of my project.

                        If i edit the config to not run default but use server instead it comes up okay


                        I did not understand what this means? What exactly did you change?


                        There is for some of the other configs like standard and all, but default and web contain no /lib directories.


                        The default and the web are the ones which have empty lib folders. The other configurations have atleast 1 jar file. As Peter mentioned, i suspect its some setting that's preventing empty folders from being downloaded/unzipped. Not sure.


                        that the distro ought to have an empty /lib under server/default.


                        Not just the default, but all server configurations like web, standard etc... have a lib folder.

                          If you open the file in winzip and look at the list of files you will not see the server/default/lib directory because winzip lists files and since there is no file in lib, that directory is not listed.

                          If you select all of the files in winzip and say extract, you will not get the lib directory. Why? Because there is no file in that directory and thus you could not have selected any file, hence no directory.

                          However, if you right-click the zip file and choose Winzip > Extract To Here, you will get the server/default/lib directory. Also, in winzip, if you do not select any files and then do File > Extract, you will get the lib directory. So it all depends on how you do the extraction. Essentially, you want to have selected the "All files/folders in archive" option on the Extract dialog box.

                          Perhaps the JBoss AS team should consider placing a "this_dir_empty.txt" file into the server/default/lib directory so that this issue will not come up in the future.

                            Yes, we should put an empty file there, just in case.
