Affects Version/s: ErraiBus 1.0 Beta, 1.1.0.M1
Fix Version/s: 1.1-Final
Environment:Scenario 1 - All environments where EAR archives are used
Scenario 2 - All Windows environments using archive formats of any type.
Classpath scanning fails to find class files and thus fails to find services and extensions under a few major scenarios.
Scenario 1 - class files within a WAR within an EAR. I believe this likely extends to any nesting of archive formats but specifically EAR formats are neglected in the codebase (ConfigUtil class).
Scenario 2 - I see some problems under windows filesystems when handling archive formats of any type. The codebase has "/" hardcoded as the file separator which is bad practice and leads to this problem. The File.separator should be used instead.
I believe most of the problems can be remedied in the ConfigUtil class but I have not been successful testing any changes yet.
As a note, classpath scanning is done in many other libraries. It seems silly to keep recreating classpath scanning libraries. A few are listed below.
