JBoss Tools Bug: SeamListener not Found

Discover how powerful static code analysis and ergonomic design make development not only productive but also an enjoyable experience, brought to you in partnership with JetBrains

If you use JBoss Tools Plugin for Eclipse to deploy apps to JBoss 5.1 container and get a “SeamListener not found”, this post provides a simple workaround.

I deployed a webapp to JBoss 5.1 container from Eclipse using JBoss Tools plugin. The app failed to start with the following error:

19:01:14,762 WARN  [JAXWSDeployerHookPreJSE] Cannot load servlet class: org.jboss.seam.servlet.SeamResourceServlet

This seemed to be a bug, as the above class is contained in the jboss-seam.jar, which I included in the classpath via the following maven snippet

<dependency>
<groupId>org.jboss.seam</groupId>
<artifactId>jboss-seam</artifactId>
<version>2.2.0.GA</version>
</dependency>

I confirmed that the jar was not present in the deployed app, by going to the “Server” tab in eclipse and right-clicking on my app and “Explore”. The explore option launched a new window and listed the actual deployed app. I confirmed that the jboss-seam.jar was not present. Your deployment directory will be something like this:

C:\workspace\.metadata\.plugins\org.jboss.ide.eclipse.as.core\JBoss_5.1_Runtime_Server1286220891669\deploy\hcf.war

Upon Googling, I found that this is due to a known bug in JBoss Tools.

This issue has apparently been fixed in 3.2.0 M1.

Here “hcf” is the name of my app.

Workaround

By hit and trial, I found a simple workaround. After you deploy your webapp, simply copy the missing jar to the “lib” directory of the deployed app and restart Jboss.

Wrong location

You will find the file ‘jboss-seam-2.2.0.GA.jar’ in this directory.

C:\workspace\.metadata\.plugins\org.jboss.ide.eclipse.as.core\JBoss_5.1_Runtime_Server1286220891669\deploy\hcf.war  

Correct location

C:\workspace\.metadata\.plugins\org.jboss.ide.eclipse.as.core\JBoss_5.1_Runtime_Server1286220891669\deploy\hcf.war\WEB-INF\lib  

Move the seam jar from the wrong location to the correct location. Restart Jboss after moving the file, and the error should go away.
