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"
