Hi folks,

This is more a JBoss Modules question, but I decided to start here first ;)

A colleague of mine is writing a Forge 1 plugin that uses SAP's APIs to deploy ear files to the NetWeaver server. And he gets a weird ClassNotFoundException for the class javax.rmi.CORBA.Tie. It is used by our APIs for performing remote connections.

We rewrote his plugin to Forge 2 addon and we got the same exception again. Here is the JBoss Modules specific part of the exception trace, although I don't think it is quite useful:

Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: javax.rmi.CORBA.Tie from [Module "com.sap.nw.deploy.forge.nwdeploy:1.0.0-SNAPSHOT_d5a54a79-5d83-4f31-bc98-1d6384c4df1c" from AddonModuleLoader]
at org.jboss.modules.ModuleClassLoader.findClass(ModuleClassLoader.java:197)
at org.jboss.modules.ConcurrentClassLoader.performLoadClassUnchecked(ConcurrentClassLoader.java:443)
at org.jboss.modules.ConcurrentClassLoader.performLoadClassChecked(ConcurrentClassLoader.java:431)
at org.jboss.modules.ConcurrentClassLoader.performLoadClass(ConcurrentClassLoader.java:373)
at org.jboss.modules.ConcurrentClassLoader.loadClass(ConcurrentClassLoader.java:118)
... 83 more

I de-compiled the SAP code that blows up and at the row where the exception is thrown, I see the following:

this.out = new MarshalOutputStream(new ByteArrayOutput(this.offset));

The MarshalOutputStream class is from SAP APIs as well and it has in its imports javax.rmi.CORBA.Tie.

Can you think of a reason why JBoss Modules would have a problem loading a class that is part of the standard JDK?
