Subject [jira] Commented: (OPENJPA-148) Parsing exception while using an "exploded" archive
Date Fri, 04 May 2007 16:21:15 GMT


David Jencks commented on OPENJPA-148:

Marc did not apply this part of the patch, which was actually the crucial part to get this
to work for geronimo :-).  As I noted before this may well not be the best way to solve the
problem, its only virtue is that it works:

+                if ("file".equals(url.getProtocol())) {
+                    File file = new File(url.getFile()).getAbsoluteFile();
+                    if (files.contains(file)) {
+                        continue;
+                    }
+                }

For reasons that are not entirely clear to me yet, the war WEB-INF/classes directory is showing
up both in the files list (where it is processed correctly) and the urls list where it is
causing an error since the code tries to treat it as an xml file.  The patch excerpt above
is a bit of a hack but it checks each url to see if it matches a file in the files list and
if so skips it.  In particular the directory WEB-INF/classes is matched so it is skipped,
thus sidestepping the problem.

IMO it would be better to avoid duplicating locations in the files and urls list but I haven't
figured out how to make that happen yet.  I don't see much harm in this patch in any case
since AFAICT there is never a reason to process a location twice.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: jpa
>         Environment: Sun JDK 5.0 / EasyBeans / OpenJPA snapshot 0.9.7
>            Reporter: Florent BENOIT
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 0.9.8
>         Attachments: debug_traces_directorymode.txt, debug_traces_filemode_working.txt,
OPENJPA-148.patch, stacktrace-error.txt, steps.txt
> This happens when using OpenJPA as persistence provider for the EasyBeans ObjectWeb container.
> The error is happening with "exploded" archive.
> Exploded means that there is a directory, named "entitybean.jar" with a folder META-INF
which contains a file named persistence.xml, and other directories/files for the classes.
> It seems that when using this mode, OpenJPA is trying to parse the directory inputstream
(which is failing).
> This exception is not occuring if a jar file is used instead of the "exploded" mode,
but the exploded mode is the default mode for EasyBeans.
> Note also that this exception don't occur by using Hibernate Entity Manager or Oracle
TopLink Essentials as persistence provider.
> I will attach to this issue a stack trace (with the exploded directory) which fails and
at the end with a jar file (which work)
> And 4 steps used to reproduce this problem
