The type name contributor and the namespace URI com.ibm.team.repository do not resolve to IItemType


Raheem Alhamdani (282) | asked Jun 28 '17, 12:37 p.m.

Plain java standalone (Java 1.6 and RTC 6.0.1) works fine locally, but it doesn't when hosted on WebSphere (8.5.5.0)

I'm getting this error:

The way you deployed the .jar file looks wrong to me. What is the purpose of this .jar file? If you're developing an extension, you have to go back to the workshop and double check how it should be done.


Raheem Alhamdani commented Jun 29 '17, 11:30 a.m.

Its not a jar its a war file, I have searched the forum for similar questions but no clear answer, I've read the extension work shop as well but nothing relate to this.

The purpose of this application is to create Work Items on the server with some parameters given by the user using a form inside a Servlet/JSP/JSF. Ultimately I would like to guide the users to create WBS through UI and procedures I see fit. another word create my own conveyor belt for the generation of Work Items.


Raheem Alhamdani commented Jun 29 '17, 12:48 p.m.

This is my main concern right now:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com.ibm.team.repository.client.internal.ContributorManager (initialization failure)    



Raheem Alhamdani commented Jul 06 '17, 12:45 p.m.

None of those suggestions helped, can you please be more specific about what am I doing wrong?

You don't provide any useful information in your question. So start thinking  How should I ask a question in the Forum if I want to receive useful answers? and acting accordingly. Otherwise Google, or a search at Stackoverflow might be an option.

class loader policy, and loading the servlet.jar were parts of the problem, not sure why loading the servlet jar stops the app from initializing
