Have you found a way to integrate the two?

Sorry for the late reply, but there seems to be no other reply on this topic.

I've made a related post here:

Let me know if this works for you!

The following workaround has been checked in for EclipseLink M8 to work with JBoss 4.2.2 GA.
Container managed entities should predeploy/deploy and register now with/without static weaving.
When the UCL3 classLoader no longer causes a NPE (See JIRA we will reenable dynamic weaving on EAR predeploy().

EclipseLink will use the non-temporary classLoader instead of the one from getNewTempClassLoader() obtained from the JBoss PersistenceUnitInfo that throws a NPE on loadClass() or Class.forName().
We require that JBoss implementers statically weave container managed entities and reference JBoss as the target-server in persistence.xml.

Deployment Changes:
1) If weaving is required then static weave the entities before EAR packaging using either the command-line weaver or the weaving ant task.
2) All persistence units deployed to the JBoss container must contain the following property in persistence.xml or container managed entities will predeploy but fail to be managed at runtime.


JBoss AS 4.2.2 GA debugging:
I debugged the UCL3 NullPointerException into the JBoss AS 4.2.2 GA source into the following segment of code.

In the following function the classloader parent tree is searched all the way to the root.
no clazz is returned and in the finally clause the last log.trace causes a RuntimeException on a NPE.
Curious though that the line number in Logger.trace() does not correspond to the JDK 1.5 src.

public abstract class RepositoryClassLoader extends URLClassLoader
public Class loadClass(String name, boolean resolve)
throws ClassNotFoundException
--->NPE log.trace("loadClass " + this + " name=" + name + " not found");

EclipseLink may be unable to get a spec mandated temporary class loader from the server, you may be able to use static weaving as an optional workaround.
