Unable to deploy Activiti modules on Glassfish 4.1

Hi,

I have a strange problem. Previously, we have used Activiti 5.16 and 5.16.1, and we had no problems with it.

Now, we would like to deploy it for a new project, but with the latest version, 5.19.

I have a clean install of Glassfish 4.1, running on JDK 1.8, a clean database (SQL Server 2014), created with the 3 create scripts.

When I try to deploy the activiti wars (activiti-explorer and activiti-rest), I get the following exception:

Can anyone tell me, what should I do differently?
The class stated missing, is in one of the libraries in the activiti .wars, so it should work fine, but it looks like GF can't load the library, when deploying the war file?

Thanks for your help!
