Maybe I don't understand what you are saying, but I don't think this  
is an accurate description of the problem in 1.0 nor IMO could it be  
the problem here.  In 1.0, a gbean in a web app can't see the web-app  
classes nor the classes in WEB-INF/lib.  However, the problem here is  
that the application can't see xmlbeans classes: there are no custom  
gbeans in sight :-)

I think the easiest solution is to use dependency elements for  
xmlbeans and stax-api: that way you won't need copies of these jars  
in your war.  This solution should work for 1.0, 1.1, or 1.2 although  
the syntax is different in 1.1

I suspect the basic problem here is that you didn't include stax-api  
jar, which is where the missing class is from.

You should be able to use a different version of xmlbeans in your app  
because the geronimo copy is used on in builder modules, none of  
which are parents of a j2ee application.
