Embedded JBoss Update

Posted by    |       Seam

A quick update for those who like living on the edge ;-)

Firstly, I've published a snapshot of Embedded JBoss beta3 - this is a pretty major update to Embedded JBoss (and its components like EJB3, Hibernate etc.) and pretty close to the beta3 release - so it would be great to get some feedback. It's looking good (but there is a known issue with JMS).

If you want to give it a go:

  • Tomcat: Follow these instructions to install into a /fresh/ copy of Tomcat.
  • SeamTest: Replace your current bootstrap directory and lib/test directory

Secondly, if you've made the move to Java 6 you need a couple of tweaks to Embedded JBoss for the beta3 snapshot:

  1. Start java with -Dsun.lang.ClassLoader.allowArraySyntax=true
  2. Java 6 SE includes JAXB 2.0, but Embedded JBoss needs JAXB 2.1. The easiest way to do this is to put the jaxb-api.jar (for JAXB 2.1) into the endorsed library directory, then start java with -Djava.endorsed.dirs=/path/to/endorsed/directoy

Your testng launcher would look something like this:

<testng outputdir="/path/to/test/report/directory">
   <jvmarg line="-Djava.endorsed.dirs=/path/to/endorsed/directory" />
   <jvmarg line="-Dsun.lang.ClassLoader.allowArraySyntax=true" />
   <classpath refid="test.classpath" />
   <xmlfileset dir="/path/to/src/directory" includes="**/testng.xml" />
