WEB-INF/lib jars not found in JBoss 4.0.2 war deploy
I have a simple web application (one jsp and one servlet) file that I've copied into jboss-4.0.2/server/default/deploy folder and it has successfully hot deployed as I can access the jsp page. However, when I invoke the servlet, I am getting a java.lan.NoClassDefFoundError.
I suspect that the jars under the WEB-INF/lib directory within the war is not being picked up.
The structure of my war is:
META-INF --> MANIFEST.MF WEB-INF --> classes --> ...*.classes --> lib --> jcommon-1.0.16.jar jfreechart-1.0.13.jar servlet-api.jar index.jsp
Anybody else have classloading issues in JBoss 4?
At the very least, you should not have the servlet-api.jar file in there. Those classes should all be provided by the Servlet container (in your case, JBoss).
