I'm using spring-ws 1.5.7, and wiring up my SOAP endpoints using annotations. This is all working fine on Tomcat.
When I try to run on Websphere (and I have wired up the class loader to run "application first"/"parent last") my bean initialization phase fails, with the root cause exception being:
It looks like the culprit is something to do with AnnotationActionEndpointMapping, but there's very little to go on in the stack trace, or in the source for AnnotationActionEndpointMapping.java.
Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
My best guess is that something is going wrong with AOP in the WebSphere environment, but I can't find a reference to any similar problems elsewhere.
If anyone has any suggestions I'd be most grateful, before I redo the wiring to avoid the use of annotations
