    JBoss class load order/application class dependancy question

    Ben Kyrlach Newbie

      I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong place.

      I have a question about the order in which JBoss loads classes in the class path, and whether or not there is a way to force JBoss to load web-application classes first, and/or keep each web applications classes seperate from eachother/JBoss.

      I'm in the process of developing a small web application that runs functional testing on web applications in developement here at my company. I'm using an open source project called HTMLUnit (version 1.4), and I'm finding that several of the classes that HTMLUnit depends on are also classes being used by JBoss. The problem is that HTMLUnit is using the latest releases of said classes, including some beta releases (or so I believe). Because JBoss uses older versions of these classes, my web application won't run. I experimented a little with updating some of the classes that JBoss uses in order to be compatible with HTMLUnit, but I've had no success.

      Is there a way for me to force JBoss classes to be kept seperate from application classes?

      Is there a way for me to update JBoss to the latest version of these classes?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
