Deploying a web app in JBoss 5.x (and later, I think), the classpath is ['__classpath__', '__pyclasspath__/'] but it should also contain $JBOSS_HOME/{DEPLOYMENT}/WEB-INF/lib/Lib and $JBOSS_HOME/{DEPLOYMENT}/WEB-INF/lib/jython.jar/Lib. Therefore, one is unable to import any libraries and one receives the error: "ImportError: No module named ..."

Reason for the error:
JBoss 5.x introduces the vfszip protocol for jar files. org.python.core.PySystemState uses the jar:file protocol name in an attempt to parse a string that contains the jar filename out of a string that looks like "jar:file:/some/path/jython.jar!/org/python/core/PySystemState.class" in other containers. JBoss returns "vfszip:/some/path/jython.jar/org/python/core/PySystemState.class". Note the missing "!" and the protocol name is different.

The fix:
The fix is to also test for the vfszip: string and parse the resulting string in a way that extracts the jar filename. A patch for 2.5.2b1 is attached.

Additional Note:
It looks like JBoss is staying with vfszip, so this issue is not likely confined to version 5. The issue was originally spotted in Jython version 2.5.1, so that is a confirmed affected version as well.

promised to fix rigth after JavaOne

on Windows, the URL contains a leading slash right after vfszip:, e.g.:

This needs to be removed in order to get a working path.

Can you confirm that everything after vfszip: belongs to a valid path on *nix (like your patch suggests) ?
msg6157 (view) Author: Eric Lentz (elentz) Date: 2010-10-08.12:12:11
Yep, its all valid path. On the Solaris 10 system I'm using and the Fedora Linux 12 system, they have numerous log file references that speak to vfszip:/a/valid/path. So, we would want everything after the ":", minus the /org/python/core/PySystemState.class, just as the patch does.

So, a question for you. Are you concerned about the leading "/" before the "C:"? I didn't make an exhaustive search of, but I see the result of the method call being used at least in findRoot which uses it in a File class. At least on 1.5.0_22, a leading slash is okay.

File testFile = new File("/D:/tmp/Foo.txt");
if(testFile.isFile() && testFile.canRead())
  System.out.println("It is a readable file");
BufferedReader input = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(testFile));

It is a readable file
This is the contents of Foo.txt  (which is what is in Foo.txt, so it works fine)

Thanks for your care and attention to this issue.

Oh, I re-read your message and see you are concerned about it. Based on my test, do you still think it is an issue?
msg6159 (view) Author: Oti Humbel (otmarhumbel) Date: 2010-10-09.07:47:00

many thanks for all your tests!

In short: yes i am still concerned about the leading slash on windows.
Our Jython embedding in JBoss 5 did not work this way, i had to remove the slash. Sadly i don't exactly remember why, and i have no possibility to verify it until in 2 weeks.

My suggestion is to distinguish between windows and other platforms for the moment

The attached 1639patch.txt fixes the problem - to the best of my knowledge
