Hi,
I'm new to JBoss, and till now only I've used Tomcat.
However I wanted to deploy some application on JBoss, which I've previously deployed successfully on Tomcat.
The simple servlet/Jsp based application, I can engage on IBoss.
But any of my other application, inside what I use additional technologies like:
Struts2, Hibernate 3, String 2x, which also successfully were deployed on Tomcat, cannot be engaged on JBoss.
The exception I get is :





However, if I remove Xerces.jar from my application's lib directory, and redeploy application, I get little changed exception :



I would appreciate if someone indicate at problem solution... Thanks

I'm guessing that your app contains a JAR file containing javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory. Please list the contents of your WAR file (use "jar -tf xxx.war")

I founded that it's an issue about class loading. The classes which my application use have been already loaded by application level classloader.
I try to exclude some files potentially loaded by an application classloader, and it's work. However, some of excluded classes was crucial for engaging some parts of application.
Then I try to 'fine grain' what libraries are used by application loader, and what libraries are not, so the later one will be present in my application. After such a selection, sever was start at all. I figure out that I need to perform isolated classloading. There is a n article on JBoss community forum, but I still cannot perform such an isolation so only libraries stored in my application/lib, to be used?! Even I do not that solution, The also good one will be if someone explain me either how to use libraries of JBoss, but not to be in conflict with unique application libraries?

Well, I read it by probably I didn't figure out at right way. As I understand, to make isolated class loading (to constrain loading of applications libraries) I should make this elemnts in jboss-web.xml, file, place it in the WEB-INF/ directorium of my web application, and than make .war file, which will be deployed.
This is the content of jboss-web.xml file :


Is it ok? Also I'm in doubt, what need to stay here

where test.war is the name of war.In the article you post here says :


Please, correct me in my mistakes ...
