Hi Andrus,

I tried the 3.0M1 build and am still getting the class not found error
although manifest as a CayenneRuntimeException caused by
ClassNotFoundException.

Here is a trace:

Caused by: org.apache.cayenne.CayenneRuntimeException: [v.3.0M1 Jul 16

The problem is not that Cayenne cannot be found, it occurs when
Cayenne tries to load the mapped classes using the web app class
loader. What I don't get is that why the web app class loader cannot
load the classes.

I am guessing that Axis2 creates a class loader for each web service,
loads the application classes and the jars in the lib folder (thats
why it finds Cayenne jars). But when Cayenne retrieves a class loader
(WebappClassLoader), this class loader is probably the one for the
Axis2 web service, not the one that Axis2 is using to load web
services.

Probably there is a way to get the class loader for the particular web
service within the Axis2 (webapp) servlet.

Best,
- Ajay
