Subject Re: WebService on Geronimo 2.1.3 for Mac OS X 10.5.5 using Java 6
Date Wed, 12 Nov 2008 16:23:32 GMT


thank you for your help, increasing the memory made my application to work
(I migrate from MS Windows to Mac OS and from JBoss to Geronimo, probably
too many things at once :-).

So, all the webServices seem to work OK now, thanks to you, but the
exception is still the same:

geronimo.out says:

 [JAXWSTools] Missing
/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/lib. This may be
required for wsgen to run. 
Problem encountered during annotation processing; 
see stacktrace below for more information.
cannot be cast to com.sun.mirror.type.AnnotationType at
... this trace for every webService I deploy (I've got 13 webServices with
cca 30 methods each).

This is how I start geronimo: in command line: 
export JAVA_OPTS="-Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m"
./ start

then in Eclipse: Add - Remove projects... my app EAR with EJB module with
the webServices

I noticed in your reply you still mention the /lib but I don't have it in my
...1.6.0 folder. 
If I say "set" on command line, I get:

JAVA_OPTS='-Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=128m'

Thanks for any help
