[jboss-user] [Beginners Corner] - Velocity issue

Hi all,
I am pretty new to JBOSS and I have some hard times integrating Velocity into JBOSS. I hope that this is the right place to ask for help.
Basically, what I would like to do is is the following: I have an EJB which uses a helper class for creating some content. The helper class creates the content using the Velocity framework. The code from the helper class looks like this:

  | VelocityEngine velocityEngine = new VelocityEngine();
  | velocityEngine.setProperty(
  | //set the template location to where my templates reside				
  | velocityEngine.init();
  | StringWriter out = new StringWriter();
  | velocityEngine.mergeTemplate(mailMessageTemplate, templateContext.getContext(), out);
In order to be able to do that I have placed Velocity in the classpath of my application. I am wondering if this is the right why to use Velocity inside JBOSS(and EJBs). The reason I am in doubt about this is the JBOSS log when I start the server:

As I have pointed out above, it seems that there is a problem starting Velocity. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
