Hi All,
I'm an Apache OFBiz commiter. Recently I done some work to allow OFBiz to run under WASCE 2.0.1 and Geronimo 2.0.3 http://docs.ofbiz.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=4098
But I'm now facing an issue on Windows XPsp2: I can't run WASCE with a security manager settled from the command line using -Djava.security.manager=default -Djava.security.policy=client.policy options. I get the error below. Note that this is working properly under Linux (Ubuntu and Suze as well). Am I missing someting or should I open a Jira issue  ? (I tried also -Djava.security.manager, but I guess it's the same)

As posted on the corresponding Jira, here's a work-around:

Set the Xorg.apache.geronimo.JarFileClassLoader property to "false". E.g.:

set JAVA_OPTS=-Djava.security.manager -Djava.security.policy=client.security -DXorg.apache.geronimo.JarFileClassLoader=false

Your should be able to start Geronimo, now. This isn't really a fix. However, for a relatively static deployment of Geronimo, this should work fine. If you're using the server as a development environment and repeatedly deploying/undeploying applications you'll find that deployment artifacts are not properly deleted and you also may encounter ClassLoader memory leaks.
