Description Kevin Conner 2010-11-08 08:42:15 EST
Workaround Description: Remove the jaxws-rt and jaxws-tools jars from soap.esb.
project_key: SOA

[java] Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassCastException: com.sun.xml.ws.client.sei.SEIStub cannot be cast to org.apache.cxf.frontend.ClientProxy
     [java] at org.apache.cxf.frontend.ClientProxy.getClient(ClientProxy.java:93)
     [java] at org.jboss.test.ws.jaxws.samples.wssecurity.client.WSSClient.setupWsse(WSSClient.java:74)
     [java] at org.jboss.test.ws.jaxws.samples.wssecurity.client.WSSClient.getEndpointPort(WSSClient.java:64)
     [java] at org.jboss.test.ws.jaxws.samples.wssecurity.client.WSSClient.main(WSSClient.java:50) 

This is caused by the existence of the jaxws-rt and tools jars within soap.esb.

Two possible solutions
- remove them as part of the CXF installation
- find an alternative mechanism to pass them in to wise

Comment 2 Martin Vecera 2010-12-01 09:29:52 EST
Please note that those two jar files contain some important classes like WsImport Ant task needed by some quickstarts.
Comment 3 Kevin Conner 2010-12-01 09:43:34 EST
Only the wise ones, as far as I am aware.  Do you know of others?
Comment 4 Kevin Conner 2010-12-01 13:05:03 EST

Comment 5 Martin Vecera 2010-12-02 04:44:55 EST
Ok, you are right. I did not find any others...
Comment 6 Kevin Conner 2010-12-03 05:18:13 EST
The issue is one of classpath ordering in that the base-build.xml was not updated to include the cxf jars.
Comment 7 Kevin Conner 2010-12-03 05:22:38 EST
Link: Added: This issue depends JBESB-3540
Comment 8 Kevin Conner 2010-12-03 05:29:58 EST
Now that the classpath is fixed it looks like wise no longer uses those files, we may be able to remove them after all.
Comment 9 Kevin Conner 2010-12-03 06:20:40 EST
Spoke too soon, there are explicit loads of "com.sun.xml.ws.spi.ProviderImpl" within the WSDynamicClient so, although it is using the CXF classes to import (once velocity.jar is installed), it is still forcing a load of the sun class.

Will try to disable this using AOP and see if the velocity.jar and AOP is sufficient to get wise working.
Comment 10 Kevin Conner 2010-12-03 06:22:22 EST
Another issue would be the output generated on the console.

Comment 11 Kevin Conner 2010-12-03 07:08:32 EST
I ran the wise tests by copying in the velocity.jar file and leaving the jaxws-rt ones, all worked.

Will assign this to Julian to update the installation script for that jar.
