    EAR Deployment failed with JBoss 4.2.3 and Mysql

    Augusto Senerchia Newbie

      Hi there!

      We are running a JBoss 4.2.3.GA, MySQL version 5.0.67-0ubuntu6, Ubuntu server 8 and Java 1.6.0.

      We have developed a Seam 2.1.1 project on Windows by using Eclipse Europa and the JBossTools and everything works fine, since we are able to use Eclipse to publish to JBoss 4.2.3 and to run the app.

      Now we are trying to publish the web application on Linux by copying the deployed ear directory and the datasouce from the Jboss running on Windows (this approach works fine on Windows).
      Unfortunately the deployment fails as you can see below.

      The same deployment works in Windows XP with the same configuration.

      I've tested the MySQL datasource by using a jsp which looks up at the datasource on Linux and I'am able to read the database
      metadata. So I' don't know why the deployment fails.


      On startup the server says that:

      Do you have any ideas why the deployment fails? I've also tried to hot deploy the datasource or the ear with no luck: the errior is always the same...NullPointer

          Looks like a bug in Hibernate which was fixed http://forum.hibernate.org/viewtopic.php?t=970823

          But that doesn't explain why your application works on Windows and not on Linux. Are you sure there are no other server configuration changes between these two setups. Like jar files, classpath etc...

            Yes the two configurations are the same (zipped and unzipped the whole jboss directory including the deploy directory with the web application).

            With your suggestion and the information I've found in your blog the bug seems to be resolved now. For anyone facing the same problem, I've done the following:

            1) I' have created a "lib" directory in the web application ear directory
            2) I put in the lib directory the following jar files (according to the hibernate compatibility matrix):

            hibernate (3.2.6 GA)
            hibernate-annotations (3.3.0 GA)
            hibernate-commons-annotations (3.3.0 GA) (contained in the lib directory of hibernate-annotations)
            hibernate-entitymanager (3.3.0 GA)
            hibernate-search (3.0.0 GA)
            hibernate-validator (3.0.0 GA)
            lucene-core-2.4.0 (2.4.0)


            Thanks for your help.

            A.


            P.S.: it's incredible that the bug affects only the Linux system....
