Hibernate 3 with Weblogic results in ClassNotFoundException HqlToken

When using Hibernate 3 with Weblogic Server 10.3, I was getting the following exception when deploying Terracotta h2lc tutorial application.

This seems to be a known issue https://www.hibernate.org/250.html#A25

Solution:

For WAR files, Add WEB-INF/weblogic.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE weblogic-web-app PUBLIC "-//BEA Systems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 8.1//EN"
"http://www.bea.com/servers/wls810/dtd/weblogic810-web-jar.dtd">
<weblogic-web-app>
<container-descriptor>
<prefer-web-inf-classes>true</prefer-web-inf-classes>
</container-descriptor>
</weblogic-web-app>

Note: All the dependencies should be in the WAR
Warning: The above code can lead you to some ClassCastExceptions which is due to conflicting classes in WEB-INF/lib and system libs.
For me, it threw
java.lang.ClassCastException: weblogic.xml.jaxp.RegistryXMLReader cannot be cast to org.xml.sax.XMLReader  
at org.xml.sax.helpers.XMLReaderFactory.loadClass(Unknown Source)
at org.xml.sax.helpers.XMLReaderFactory.createXMLReader(Unknown Source)
at org.dom4j.io.SAXHelper.createXMLReader(SAXHelper.java:83)
at org.dom4j.io.SAXReader.createXMLReader(SAXReader.java:894)
at org.dom4j.io.SAXReader.getXMLReader(SAXReader.java:715)

so needed to remove xml-apis jar from WEB-INF/lib.

The above solution is for Web Archives only. For other applications, we might need to add the following code. Didnt tested this though :)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<weblogic-application>
<prefer-application-packages>
<package-name>antlr.*</package-name>
</prefer-application-packages>
</weblogic-application>
