Subject Re: Tuscany Geronimo integration and the SCA JEE spec
Date Fri, 23 Jan 2009 10:02:06 GMT
The problem is that the SCA contribution you have is a jar file and there is
no way of associating other jar files with that contribution. The way i
think you'd need to do that is instead of using a jar contribution use a zip
format contribution that contains all the jars the application needs. The
SCA specs do not explicitly say the jars nested within a zip contribution
should be added to the application classpath but it make sense to me,
unfortunately the current Tuscany code does not do that. I've raised a JIRA
[1] and started a thread on the Tuscany del list about this [2], i'll post
back here when there is a resolution.

In the mean time a way to work around this would be to use one of the JEE
packaging formats that do support nested application jars, for example, use
a webapp .war with the application jars in the web-inf/lib folder.
