Offline deployer busted when adding sharedlib reference into offline-deployer-config.xml


    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 2.0.2
    • Fix Version/s: 2.0.3, 2.1
    • Component/s: deployment
    • Security Level: public (Regular issues)
    • Labels:
    • Environment:

      Windows XP SP2

    • Regression:


      For EAR applications that have references shared libraries and depend upon the sharedlib config, the offline-deployer-config.xml needs to be modified to add the following line:

      <module name="org.apache.geronimo.configs/sharedlib/2.0.2/car"/>

      This allows for the EAR application to be deployed offline. If this line were not to be added, the offline deployment would fail.

      This was working in Geronimo 2.0.1. As of Geronimo 2.0.2, it seems that adding this line causes the offline deployment process to hang with the following error:

      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException

      Checking the repository and the config.xml shows that the deployment actually succeeds, but then the process hangs with the "already deployed" error above. This error is strange because the specified resource was NOT already deployed.

      I've attached a very simple test case that can reproduce the error.

      1) Unzip the contents into your top-level Geronimo folder
      2) Modify the offline-deployer-config.xml to add the "<module name="org.apache.geronimo.configs/sharedlib/2.0.2/car"/>" configuration.
      3) Execute offline deployment with the following command:

      java -jar bin\deployer.jar --user system --password manager --offline deploy geronimo-activemq-ra-2.0.2.rar jms-dest.xml

      This should reproduce the error.
