Subject RE: ClassCastException: incompatible with com.sun.xml.bind.api.JAXBRIContext
Date Fri, 10 Oct 2014 14:15:14 GMT
Hello Florian,

Thank you for your quick response.  It is much appreciated!

Do you know by chance if this problem is corrected in OpenCMIS 0.10.0?

Thanks again!

Hi Robert,

The WebSphere specific configuration had issues and therefore has been removed in later OpenCMIS

The best thing you can do is to upgrade to OpenCMIS 0.12.0 (because of several enhancements)
and use the standard OpenCMIS web service implementation, which is based on the Sun JAX-WS
RI. You may have to change the classloader configuration. But this setup is known to work
in WebSphere.

If upgrading is not an option, try adding this line to your META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file:
DisableIBMJAXWSEngine: true

It might help...
