When I try to deploy a spring application in Jboss, I get this error:

Does someone know what can I do to deploy this?

Thanks

From the second line:

java.lang.RuntimeException: Specification violation [EJB3 JPA 6.2.1.2] - 
      You have not defined a jta-data-source for a JTA enabled persistence 
      context named: ehr-punit

This line here kinda suggests a solution to one of your problems. Try creating a jta-data-source called ehr-punit.

That could be a massive red herring, as I have no knowledge about JTA or JBoss.

A little further down, you have:

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanDefinitionStoreException: 
  Unexpected exception parsing XML document from ServletContext resource 
  [/WEB-INF/applicationContext.xml]; nested exception is 
  java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.xerces.jaxp.DocumentBuilderFactoryImpl
  cannot be cast to javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory

This means that Spring is trying to inject a DocumentBuilderFactoryImpl into a method that is expecting a javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory. Clearly the former does not implement or extend the latter. I would try using a difference version of xerces to see if this has changed recently.

Ok, The first error I had already solved, so don't mind (I deployed an old version, my mistake). The second one I think that it is an incompatibility between the xerces that comes in Jboss 5.1 and xml-api that, I think, is required by Hibernate. And when I deploy the two libraries together jboss complains. What I really wanted was a way to isolate the ClassLoader of this application in a way that when deploying this application jboss would use the xerces that comes with it. I tried to define a new classLoader in jboss-web.xml but it didn't work. Is there another way? –  Rafael Jul 20 '09 at 17:32

For the second exception, try to put xercesImpl.jar in the jboss endorsed dir.

What are the java and jboss versions?

Regarding the error java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.xerces.jaxp.DocumentBuilderFactoryImpl cannot be cast to javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory...

There is apparently some conflict between a jar (xercesImpl?) that JBoss is providing and something packaged in your application. (I'm on JBoss 5)

Scanning my application jars for DocumentBuilderFactory, my only usage of it comes from xml-apis.jar, which a dependency of dom4j, which is a dependency of hibernate-core. After removing that jar from my app, (thus relying on JBoss to provide the appropriate class), I'm able to make it past that error.

And now I'm on to a different error :)
