    I still cannot get the WS handlers to work using this version of picket link. When i try to deploy a ws with the WS handlers I get a class not found exception

    Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: from [Module "deployment.pojo-test.war:main" from Service Module Loader]

    Is it still packaged the same ?

      Have you updated the org.picketlink module properly ?

      This documentation may be useful:

      Also, do not forget to provide a META-INF/jboss-deployment-structure.xml inside your deployment with the org.picketlink module as a dependency.

        Now that leads to the next class not found error

        java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Lorg/jboss/wsf/spi/invocation/SecurityAdaptorFactory;

        I do not see the org.jboss.wsf.spi  package (JBoss WS 3.4.x in the deployed modules in jboss as 7.

        The only package that i see is but that is JBoss WS 4.o.x.

        Why are picket link jars using JBoss WS 3.4.x that is not packaged with JBoss AS 7.

        Any insights into how i can get past this dependency error ?

          Recently we made some changes as you noticed to get the WS and EJB support working with JBoss AS 7.

          You're probably getting this error because the org.picketlink module configuration has changed. Those changes should be present in the next releases of the JBoss AS.

          For now you can just add the following dependencies to the org.picketlink module configuration: 

              <module name="" />
              <module name="" />
              <module name="org.apache.cxf" />

          You can see the complete configuration at

          Please, discard the XSLT code and copy and paste only the module configuration.

            Those dependencies are JBoss WS 4.0.x packages but the picketlink trust code is using JBoss WS 3.4.x packaging


            and not*

            The code here uses the following import
            import org.jboss.wsf.spi.invocation.SecurityAdaptor;

            and that does not exist in any jar under modules in jboss as7

              We are not using the SVN repository anymore, but github:

              Regarding the missing classes/modules. If you're using JBoss AS 7.1.1.Final you should have them at modules/org/jboss/ws/spi/main.

            When i try to get a client access the secured web service I get the following

            java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.jboss.logging.Logger.getMessageLogger(Ljava/lang/Class;Ljava/lang/String;)Ljava/lang/Object;
                at org.picketlink.identity.federation.PicketLinkLoggerMessages.<clinit>(

            Does the jboss logging dependency used by picket link different from jboss-logging 3.1.0.GA ?

            1. Nov 06, 2012

              I would suggest to move this discussion to the user forum. There you can give more details about your environment like JBoss AS 7 version, some code, etc.

              Makes sense ? After that we can post here the link to the thread so that others can follow this topic.
