I am getting an exception in a start up bean. Its in DocumentAppStartUpBean implements javax.ejb.SessionBean.
Right when we try to get the session factory for hibernate it throws the exception.
The code is blowing up in sessionFactory = new Configuration().configure("hibernate.cfg.xml").buildSessionFactory();
The error occurs when I am starting up our data DataAccessServiceEar. So if I was running under Tomcat I would guess that the hibernate3.jar needed to be in the WEB-INF directory; however, since this i
s WebSphere and we are using EJB I am not sure where to look next.
I have the Hibernate3.jar in the build path for the project. The DocumentAppStartUpBean is the bean that is throwing the exception.
The error is EJB threw an unexpected (non-declared) exception during invocation of method "start" on bean "BeanId(DataAccessService#InvcDASEJB.jar#DocumentAppStartUp, null)". Exception data: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org.hibernate.cfg.Configuration. The problem occurs when I start the ear file in WebSphere console.
I guess the WebSphere server is not seeing the hibernate jars?
The directory for the server is C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\WID7_WTE\runtimes\bi_v7\lib
