Hi All,

I had NN.war application which is deploying fine in my local Machine in both Web Logic 10.3.5 and Web Logic 10.3.6. But in my dev box it has Web Logic 10.3.5, when I try to deploy the same app. I am getting the error mention below.

Caused By: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: javax/el/ExpressionFactory.newInstance()Ljavax/el/ExpressionFactory;
at org.apache.jasper.runtime.JspApplicationContextImpl.getExpressionFactory(JspApplicationContextImpl.java:96)
at com.sun.faces.config.ConfigureListener.registerELResolverAndListenerWithJsp(ConfigureListener.java:1570)

This class is present in two files - jsf which is deployed as a shared library and referenced from weblogic.xml since it is a war. It is also present in web-inf/lib in jsp-api.jar. Thought that may be conflict issue so removed one and tried with only one. But no success


The entire stack track is :

The issue might occur due to conflict on the class versions.

Make sure you put the latest el-api.jar in your jre/lib/ext and give it a try.

It is clear a classloading conflict.

It is not good practice to have JSP implementation in oyur webapp; WLS already has it:
"web-inf/lib in jsp-api.jar"

At the end, you need to identify the jar files with the classes which has and hasn't such method.

 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
