Just read a little bit more carefully stack-trace
I think key reason in
Caused by: java.lang.ClassCastException: net.sf.cglib.proxy.Enhancer$
EnhancerKey$$KeyFactoryByCGLIB$$7fb24d72 cannot be cast to net.sf.cglib.core.KeyFactory

Try to put cglib also into hidden-classes

I am trying to deploy JTrac (http://www.jtrac.info/) on Geronimo and am having problems that I believe is due to class loading. JTrac works fine when you use the Jetty server that comes with it and just call run.bat. I tried just deploying the .war by copying it to the deploy directory. This gets JTrac up and running, however when using it you will soon get an error like this:

Caused by: org.dom4j.InvalidXPathException: Invalid XPath expression: '//state[@key='1']'. Caused by: org/dom4j/Element

I can repeat that every single time and the exact same place in JTrac, but only when deployed in Geronimo. When deployed in it's own Jetty, things work fine (btw... I am using Geronimo 2.1.2 w/Jetty). So, on IRC it was suggested that I create a geronimo-web.xml plan file with inverse-classloading. I gave that a try, but that causes spring errors on the actual deploy of JTrac. I have inserted the full stack trace for the later at the bottom of this email. Here is the geronimo-web.xml file that I am using:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app xmlns="http://geronimo.apache.org/xml/ns/j2ee/web-2.0.1">
  <dep:environment xmlns:dep="http://geronimo.apache.org/xml/ns/deployment-1.2">
      <dep:moduleId>
          <dep:groupId>default</dep:groupId>
          <dep:artifactId>JTrac</dep:artifactId>
          <dep:version>1.0</dep:version>
          <dep:type>war</dep:type>
      </dep:moduleId>
      <dep:inverse-classloading />
  </dep:environment>
  <context-root>jtrac</context-root>
</web-app>

Thanks for any help. I really want to use JTrac.
