    Velocity issue

    Cristi Cioriia Newbie

      Hi all,
      I am pretty new to JBOSS and I have some hard times integrating Velocity into JBOSS. I hope that this is the right place to ask for help.
      Basically, what I would like to do is is the following: I have an EJB which uses a helper class for creating some content. The helper class creates the content using the Velocity framework. The code from the helper class looks like this:

      VelocityEngine velocityEngine = new VelocityEngine();
      velocityEngine.setProperty(
      //set the template location to where my templates reside
      
      VelocityEngine.FILE_RESOURCE_LOADER_PATH,
       RESOURCE_LOADER_PATH);
      velocityEngine.init();
      StringWriter out = new StringWriter();
      velocityEngine.mergeTemplate(mailMessageTemplate, templateContext.getContext(), out);
      

      In order to be able to do that I have placed Velocity in the classpath of my application. I am wondering if this is the right why to use Velocity inside JBOSS(and EJBs). The reason I am in doubt about this is the JBOSS log when I start the server:

      As I have pointed out above, it seems that there is a problem starting Velocity. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
