As promised here is what happened. Turns out my Eclipse project had a bunch of old xerces, OpenOffice.org, and other DLLs copied directly in to it. It was favoring those over the Jar files I was setting up through the properties interface. Once I figured that out and cleaned out all the old crap it started working just fine.
Once again it is user error. -----Original Message----- From: Herter, Scott [mailto:scott.her...@napersoft.com] Sent: Friday, September 16, 2011 7:01 AM To: email@example.com Subject: RE: Problem using Java for integration from JBoss 5.1 Will do, we are trying to get a new release of our software out so it may take a couple of weeks to sort everything out, but I will send a message to let everyone know what the solution was. -----Original Message----- From: Jürgen Schmidt [mailto:jogischm...@googlemail.com] Sent: Friday, September 16, 2011 2:29 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Problem using Java for integration from JBoss 5.1 > if it is a separate process anyway you should take a look on Java UNO client applications. I think Ariel has already posted some infos about it. This should at least ensure that the jars doesn't conflict. Let us know it solves your problem. Juergen
