play war precompile fails when template references model object by class

Reported by Rich Kroll | April 22nd, 2011 @ 07:10 PM

We recently had a need to reference a model class within a template, which worked fine when running play via 'play run'. When attempting to package play as a WAR, packaging fails with a play.exceptions.TemplateCompilationException:

Framework version: 1.1.1
Platform you're using: Linux

Reproduction steps: Add %{ models.Foo } to template page, then run 'play war my-project -o mywar.war'

play.exceptions.TemplateCompilationException: unable to resolve class models.Foo

    I confirm this error in a slightly different situation. I use play 1.2 and was running play in production mode (not packaging a war file).

    It happened to me when I was using java-style foreach, e.g.

    8< ---
    for( morphia. : > )
    8< ---

    I could work around this using Groovy-style foreach

    8< ---
    for( in > )
    8< ---

    Does play use different class loading for prod/precompilation than for dev?

    This issue has apparently been resolved in play 1.2.1

    Rich is it possible for you to upgrade to play 1.2.1? And to confirm that this bug has been fixed? If not please reopen the issue. We won't be able to fix it on the 1.1 branch I am afraid.

    Programming is the huge field and that involves the lots of technical points and different best essay writing services categories as well which boost the application usage and make it compatible. I’m also studying and doing the job in programming and from your website, I found very informative stuff.
