The Export SOE/SOI tool in Eclipse fails to export a Java SOAP SOE at version 10.7 and 10.7.1, with an error:
“org.eclipse.osgi.internal.framework.ContextFInder cannot be cast to java.net.URLClassLoader”.
The error message appears as follows:
This error only occurs when a SOAP SOE is exported, due to an Eclipse SOE/SOI plugin issue. The Export SOE/SOI tool in Eclipse still works when a REST SOE is exported.
The command-line tool soepackager can be used to export the SOE and generate the .soe file. You must first export the Java SOAP SOE project to a JAR file, and then execute soepackager from command, as follows:
For ArcGIS Enterprise SDK:
soepackager_ent.bat -p [path to the jar file exported from step 3] -o [path to output folder] -j [path to the JDK] [optional parameters]For ArcObjects:
soepackager.bat -p [path to the jar file exported from step 3] -o [path to output folder] -j [path to the JDK] [optional parameters]
More details about this tool can be found at ArcGIS Enterprise SDK Help.
For example, executing the following command produces the results shown in the screen:
C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\EnterpriseSDK\Java\tools\soepackager>soepackager_ent.bat -p C:\temp\simplesoapsoe\simplesoapsoe_ent.jar -o C:\temp\simplesoapsoe -j "C:\Program Files\java\jdk1.8.0_201"
In this way, the Java SOAP SOE can be exported properly and the generated .soe file can be deployed to ArcGIS Server.
