Hi All,

    I have encountered this problem and setting context-priority-classloader  to true has solved the problem. However, you  may need to remove commons-logging.jar from  WEB-INF/lib folder of your web application to prevent org.apache.commons.logging.LogFactory from throwing ClassCastException when the app is started (causing it not to work properly). It seems that the exception thrown is caused by having commons-logging-1.0.4.jar loaded in systems classloader  conflicting with the commons-logging  in webapp context.

    HTH,
    Cata

	You might try adding a geronimo-jetty.xml with:

<context-priority-classloader>true</context-priority-classloader>

	It may be the case that something's being loaded from the system 
classpath and you want it to be loaded from the web app classpath, and 
this will set it to search the web app classpath first.

Hi All,

I am currently working hard to get a Struts 1.2.7 application to build 
and deploy inside Geronimo HEAD. I've made great strides tonight in 
doing so, but I've run into a problem now, and I'm not sure what's 
happening. I've bundled all of the struts .jar files and dependecies in 
my WEB-INF/lib directory inside my .WAR file. I have a bunch of Struts 
Actions compiled and their classes are written to the WEB-INF/classes 
directory. My struts based .jsps seem to execute fine, and as long as I 
don't access and Struts Action classes, I'm fine. But when I do access a 
struts action, I get the error:


    HTTP ERROR: 500

org/apache/struts/action/Action

RequestURI=/phonebook/Hello.do

/Powered by Jetty:// <http://jetty.mortbay.org>
/

And the console emits the following stack trace:

So what I find freaky about this stack trace is that near the bottom, 
org.apache.struts.action stuff starts appearing indicating to me that 
the struts classes are being found, I think. Is there, perhaps, a 
conflicting Jar inside the Geronimo repository? Is there a way to make 
the Geronimo classloader only load from within the web application .WAR 
scope? Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks tons, if you can help me.

Cheers.
