I do not have a solution but I am very interested in what a solution is.  The thing with IceFaces
is that it is Component library.  Similar to Apache Tomahawk although IceFaces has rich controls
and is Ajax enabled (Both Tomahawk and IceFaces can reside in the same project and on the
same pages).  IceFaces by itself cannot stand alone without a jsf container.  And while some
application servers do not have a JSF container Geronimo comes with MyFaces.  Once again,
I do not know what is causing the error but I have seen the error that you are getting while
deploying to Apache Tomcat 6.  My thought process is that you may need to register all IceFaces
Jar files in Geronimo and reference them in you deployment descriptor or include the jar files
in the lib directory of your war file.  In either scenario, you may also need to include a
reference to MyFaces in your deployment descriptor.

Hi David,

I thought there's a allways known issue with icefaces and geronimo.

I'll go and turn the jsf and jsf deployer off, then i retry.

thx for the first tip.

thx Thomas

Re: icefaces and geronimo 2.1.4


I think we'd need a lot more info from you before being able to start
guessing at the problem.

ee servers such as geronimo come with a jsf implementation and using a
different one may not be straightforward.  Without some core
integration work you can be sure that annotations in your jsf beans
wont work.

With this limitation in mind you may be able to get some stuff to work
if you turn off the jsf and jsf deployer plugins before trying to
deploy your app.
