View Full Version : jboss/pentaho startup error

06-24-2010, 07:00 PM
I'm trying to manually deploy pentaho on jboss 4.2.3. I've already built and deployed the WAR files and JBoss will start for me, but I'm getting a ridiculously long pentaho-related error.

17:56:40,057 INFO [STDOUT] 17:56:40,053 ERROR [BasicLazyInitializer] Javassist Enhancement failed: org.pentaho.platform.engine.security.userroledao.PentahoRole

Any help would be appreciated.

I got past this error by removing the javassist jar file from jboss and copying the one from the pentaho.war/WEB-INF/lib folder in its place.

I now have another error that I am trying to solve, which I believe comes down to:

Caused by: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: javax.xml.namespace.QName.<init>(Ljava/lang/String;Ljava/lang/String;Ljava/lang/String;)V

I think there is a QName class conflict somewhere...

And I found it...

delete the pentaho.war/WEB-INF/lib/wsdl4j-qname-1.6.1.jar

Thanks so much for the reply.

I actually found a different fix for the javassist error. I edited the jboss/server/default/deploy/ejb3.deployer/META-INF/persistence.properties file by changing the following line:


changed to


I did get the same QName class conflict error that you were talking about after that and removed the file that you mentioned. Everything seems to be working now:)

This resolved my issue as well with Pentaho 3.6 and JBoss 4.2.3
I changed hibernate.bytecode.provider and removed pentaho.war/WEB-INF/lib/wsdl4j-qname-1.6.1.jar
