Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4618) ClassNotFoundException for annotations defined in JAR files an used in EJB's deployed within an EAR
Date Fri, 22 May 2009 09:40:45 GMT


Ivan commented on GERONIMO-4618:

Hi, Frank:
    I tried to write a sample ear to reproduce the error, but it works as designed. From my
view, if the utils.jar is in the lib folder of the ear, then it will be seen by all the modules
in the ear. If the utis.jar is in the root folder of the ear, then in the MANIFEST.MF file
of the ejbs.jar must contains a line like "Class-Path: utils.jar". So that utils.jar will
be seen in the classloader.
    I attached my sample ear file, or could you please attach your ear file, so that I could
use it to reproduce the error.
    Thanks for any comment !

> We have an EAR fle with an EJB jar and a utils jar file. This Utils jar file contains
an annotation, which is used at the EJB Interface. The directory layout of the EAR file is
defined in the following way:

> The Annotation in this sample has the name "a.b.c.OurAnnotation".
> The problem only disappear, when we copy the "utils.jar" (which contains our annotation)
file in the geronimo's "lib/endorsed" directory and restart geronimo- (this is no solution
but it makes the problem more clear). So it seems that the geronimo's classloader which is
active at deploy time does not find classes which are included in the EAR file itself and
needed at deploy time.
> The same EAR file can be deployed on GlassFish without problems.
