javax.el.ELException when deploying portlet in JPP 6

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • One of our portlet developers ran into an issue with his portlet. He deployed the portlet on an OOTB jboss-jpp-6.1.0-final running on Oracle JDK 1.7.0_55 on Windows 7.
    When viewing the page the portlet was deployed on he received this stack trace:
16:53:18,063 ERROR [org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[jboss.web].[default-host].[/myepoline_mailbox_portletapp].[jsp]] (http-/ JBWEB000236: Servlet.service() for servlet jsp threw exception: access denied ("java.lang.RuntimePermission" "getClassLoader")
