How to make javax.* classes visible to a custom JBoss Module in JBoss EAP 6

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I have created a module for the Grails jars and was having classloading problems related to java classes within the rt.jar file. I added this to the module.xml file in the dependencies section:
<system export="true">
        <path name="org/xml/sax"/>
        <path name="org/xml/sax/helpers"/>
        <path name="org/w3c/dom"/>
        <path name="javax/xml/parsers"/>
        <path name="javax/xml/transform"/>

Is there a better way to get these classes on the class path?
