Subject Re: [Axis2] Loading axis module from a jar file
Date Fri, 27 May 2005 03:29:11 GMT
Hi Glen an all;
I tried to do so but I couldn't able , that is because the module archive 
file is inside the modules subdirectory inside the main jar file as below;

I can get an inputstream for the module archive file (say addressing.mar) 
and can read module.xml file and so on , but the problem comes to play when 
I tried to load the module handlers and module implementation class , it was 
very difficult to do so always it throws exceptions and intact I couldn't 
find a way to fix that. That is why I need to copy and paste only the 
corresponding module archive file in to what ever location and then treat 
that module as others.

Any way take a look at the following method
creatModuleArchivefromResource() in 
org.apache.axis.deployment.repository.utill.ArchiveReader class.
