I'm comparing deployment error messages in GFv3.1 and GFv2.1.1.
In this WS app, a class is missing.
On glassfish-3.1-b21-09_17_2010, the error message has four exception class
names but nothing related to a user class missing:
remote failure: Error occur during deployment: Exception while loading the app :
java.lang.IllegalStateException: ContainerBase.addChild: st
org.apache.catalina.LifecycleException: javax.servlet.ServletException. Please
see server.log f
or more details.
Command deploy failed.
The server log has many stacktraces with one having a NoClassDefFoundError with
the missing class name in its 'caused by' part.
On GFv2.1.1 the missing class name is included in the initial error message:
CLI171 Command deploy failed : Deploying application in domain failed;
The server log here has only three error messages, all clearly indicating the
missing class name and the fact that it could not be loaded.
