An issue existed with the appclient code that prevented the direct execution of .jar files. Additional code has been added to the appclient to correct this issue, and jar files can now be executed directly.

Description Aleksandar Kostadinov 2013-08-30 15:27:33 EDT
There is a problem for appclient in EAP 6.1.1 to execute a jar file that is *not* within an EAR archive. I have a simple hello world appclient that just prints a line to stdout [1].

When I start the app calling it through the ear I see a correct result:
> bin/appclient.sh appear-1.0.ear#app-1.0.jar
> ...
> 15:19:14,992 INFO  [org.jboss.as.server] (Thread-35) JBAS018559: Deployed "appear-1.0.ear" (runtime-name : "appear-1.0.ear")
> 15:19:14,996 INFO  [stdout] (Thread-43) Hello World Enterprise Application Client!
> ...

When I try to directly start .jar though the application client just hangs there doing nothing without any error messages or other clues what is going on:
> bin/appclient.sh app-1.0.jar
> ...
> 15:22:27,987 INFO  [org.jboss.as.server] (Thread-35) JBAS018559: Deployed "app-1.0.jar" (runtime-name : "app-1.0.jar")

Nothing happens, it just sits there forever doing nothing.

Tested with ER3.1 and automated test is in place for RPM distribution.
