SAAJMetaFactoryImpl not found on Weblogic 10gR3

Question!

I'm in the process of migrating a webservice application that worked perfectly on Weblogic 9 into Weblogic 10gR3. The small difficulty is that my application uses JAX-WS and on Weblogic 9 I had to include JAX-WS libraries in my WAR. But on WLS 10, those libraries are already integrated. To avoid conflicts, I put my WAR inside an EAR with the following weblogic-application.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<weblogic-application>
  <application-param>
    <param-name>webapp.encoding.default</param-name>
    <param-value>UTF-8</param-value>
  </application-param>
  <prefer-application-packages>
    <package-name>com.sun.xml.*</package-name>
    <package-name>javax.xml.bind.*</package-name>
    <package-name>javax.jws.*</package-name>
  </prefer-application-packages>
</weblogic-application>

Thanks to that, I don't have ClassCastExceptions anymore, but I have another exception:

What's weird is that this SAAJMetaFactoryImpl class it says it cannot find is part of JDK 1.6.0_17 that is used by WLS10 on MACOSX 10.6 where it is installed.

Any idea what might cause this conflict?

Answers

From the docs, when you specify prefer-application-packages for com.sun.xml.* , those package are loaded from the application, not the system classloader.



I am not sure how this will benefit but it worked for my use case which required a boot delegation settings.

Each application server would have a configuration settings file (usually
