I'm not aware of anyone who tried ODE with OC4J so I'm not surprised you're
having a few difficulties. ODE is a plain webapp so normally <irony

Given that OC4J seem to use its own versions of WSDL4J and Jaxen, you won't
get very far if you can't get it to isolate the webapp classloader from the
server classloarder. Theoretically, all app servers should at a minimum be
able to not leak their own libraries all over the place. Practically, most
(not too good) app servers leak their libraries like a sieve.

So my advice would be to check your OC4J documentation and see if there are
options that can provide isolation of the webapp classloader from the main
server classloader or the ability to exclude some server libraries from the
webapp classloader.

Good luck,
