NoClassDefFoundError while deploying EAR

  • Problem:
    When deploying an EAR (enterprise archive file) to an application server like JBOSS,
    is thrown.
  • Solution:
    Fix your EAR package structure.

    In Eclipse, go to EAR-Project properties, select "Java EE Module Dependencies" and toggle "In Lib Dir" for your shared Java Project
  • Further information:

    • All projects/files have been created with Eclipse
    • application.ear: Exported “Enterprise Application Project”
    • app-ejb.jar: Exported “Enterprise Java Beans Project”
    • app-web.war: Exported “Dynamic Web Project”
    • app-shared.jar: Exported “Java Project”, that contains classes that are used by more than one of the sub-projects. Can also be a third party jar-File with library classes.
    • Exception occurs, since app-web.war or app-ejb.jar may be deployed just before app-shared.jar has been deployed. A workaround for that would be to first deploy app-shared.jar separately and remove it from your enterprise application compilation.

EJB ClassCastException

  • Problem:
    [Ljava.lang.Object; cannot be cast to x.y.z.beanEJB: java.lang.ClassCastException: [Ljava.lang.Object; cannot be cast to x.y.z.beanEJB
  • Solution:
    Add a “SELECT” statement to your (named) query.
    e.g. change :

    FROM beanEJB e
    INNER JOIN e.tags AS t
    WHERE t LIKE :ttt


    SELECT e FROM beanEJB e
    INNER JOIN e.tags AS t
    WHERE t.string LIKE :ttt

  • Further information:
    A (named) query may return more than one distinct Object. An additional SELECT clause will specify the return type.
  • Code snippets:
    • </named-query>
      <named-query name=”namedQuery”>
      <![CDATA[SELECT e FROM beanEJB e
      INNER JOIN e.tags AS t
      WHERE t LIKE :ttt]]>

    • Query q = em.createNamedQuery(“namedQuery”);
      q.setParameter(“ttt”, s);
