i am developing web application using java. i am using ant builder for build the java project. i am creating .ear file through ant build.xml and deploy this .ear file on jboss application server. for running some java program i have to use shared library...so at run time i have to pass java.library.path = path/of/shared/lib/libdb_java-4.3.so this libdb_java-4.3.so is shared library and it resides on linux server where jboss is installed. After deploying .ear file on jboss server.. when end-user running this application through browser(from windows operating system), how pass the java -Djava.library.path for getting shared library...
while generating .ear file through ant builder.. i am just compile the classs which includes .jar file in classpath.
if i run the program on linux server by giving command java -Djava.library.path=path/of/shared lib/libdb_java-4.3.so programName.class it works perfectly..... Is any setting on jboss server..or where to put shared library on jboss directory structure... pl. guide me... Thanks in advanced..
posted and discussed elsewhere I don't think it matters that you posted this same question at Tek-Tips, however within the JavaRanch, please don't post the same question to multiple forums. Most of us here read many forums so you aren't increasing your audience, not to mention if someone spends his valuable time answering your question here then finds the question's been answered elsewhere, you've taken up time he could have spent helping others.

Don't worry about it, ketandba. I'm just trying to keep things running smoothly. It looks like you are getting some good information on the Tek-Tips forum. So this shared library is used to access a BerkeleyDB database. Are you attempting to access the database directly from your applet? If not, you don't need the library in your applet. If you are, don't. Use the servlet to access the db for the applet, then you won't need the shared library on the client side. Furthermore, aren't there pure-java versions of the Berkeley DB software? I'd use those before I'd go native. And isn't Berkeley DB file-based? Can you even access it remotely? As for where to set up an environment variable in JBoss, check out the JBOSS_HOME/bin directory. The batch files to run it are there. You can put your environment variable in whatever you use to start it (run.bat, run.sh).
