JBoss 5

Convention plugin support

To have proper support of the Convention Plugin  in JBoss AS 5, especially when you put actions inside a jar (which is embedded in war or ear) and not directly into

WEB-INF/classes

, you must add the following line into

$JBOSS_HOME/bin/run.conf

or into

$JBOSS_HOME\bin\run.conf.bat

Linux/OSX - $JBOSS_HOME/bin/run.conf


JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Djboss.vfs.forceVfsJar=true"

Windows - $JBOSS_HOME\bin\run.conf.bat


set "JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -Djboss.vfs.forceVfsJar=true"

You can find more details about JBoss VFS here^[http://docs.jboss.org/jbossas/docs/Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide/5/html_single/index.html#d0e495].
