Using the felix console to monitor which module get loaded for the web application deployment, noticed the following appclient module got active:
19|Active | 1|org.glassfish.appclient.gf-client-module (3.1.1.SNAPSHOT)
and following got resolved:
13|Resolved | 1|org.glassfish.appclient.acc-config (3.1.1.SNAPSHOT)
46|Resolved | 1|org.glassfish.security.appclient.security (3.1.1.SNAPSHOT)
we need to figure out which dependency had triggered the appclient related modules get loaded/resolved, they should not be for a web application. The test web application is attached in its parent issue.
