If you get this application - it runs everywhere with exception of 
geronimo - websphere 7, jetty, tomcat, glassfish 3, weblogic 10.3. While 
you can certainly tune classloading in every mentioned server, it is not 
needed for majority of wars. In geronimo you need it for almost 
everything which does not fall into hello world category. Non 
willingness to play with custom deployement descriptors is reason why 
tomcat has so high market share in J2EE world - people just put OpenEJB 
+ Hibernate there and they can make it run faster then in full J2EE stacks.

thats exactly what that statement does. combined with inverse 
classloading, it will make to ignore included JTA jar in grails application.

grails springws plugin does not come with axiom and no axiom jar is 
found in application jars. Springws plugin comes with this:

      69 409 activation-1.1.1.jar
   1 651 965 bcprov-jdk14-1.43.jar
       6 461 com.russmiles.groovy.webservices.client-1.0-

      18 817 saaj-api-1.3.jar
     278 145 saaj-impl-1.3.2.jar (com.sun.xml.messaging.saaj)
     278 286 serializer-2.7.1.jar
     773 156 spring-security-core-2.0.4.jar
     776 014 spring-ws-1.5.8-all.jar
      23 346 stax-api-1.0.2.jar
     148 522 wsdl4j-1.6.1.jar
     323 799 wss4j-1.5.8.jar
   3 176 148 xalan-2.7.1.jar
     143 145 XmlSchema-1.4.3.jar
     447 633 xmlsec-1.4.3.jar

i added axiom to list of filtered classes to make sure that version 
packaged with geronimo is used but i got same error

saaj support in geronimo might be wrong
