I have alfresco 1.2.1 successfully running in jboss, however, when I try to connect to the web server with the following code:


        AuthenticationUtils.startSession("admin", "admin");
       
        try
        { // do something  
        }
        finally
        {
            // End the session
            AuthenticationUtils.endSession();
        }


I get the following Exception:

I've looked at the axis 1.4 DeserializationContext.startDTD method and it appears that it *always* throws this Exception. What am I doing wrong?

java -version:  java version "1.5.0_06"
jboss AS: jboss-4.0.SPI
I'm unsure of the version of xerces I'm using, but I believe it is the default one with JBoss.
