    Default J2EE Upload War File


    So I am brand new to Java. I did my college degree 12 years ago in Visual Basic and really never used it again. My job wants me to start doing performance analysis of Java.

    I guess they feel my .Net and infrastrcuture experience will be helpful.

    That said I started the J2EE course at vtc.com. It's dated, but is the same version of Java I am told we use at work. So this matched up I suppose.

    I created a simple hello world JSP and use the Deployment tool to create and deploy the WAR file. Worked great. I attempted to do the same thing using Sun Java System Applicatoin Server Admin console. I converted my JSP into a WAR from DOS without issue.

    PS C:\jwork\jsp02> jar cvf second.war WEB-INF outloop.jsp
    added manifest
    adding: WEB-INF/(in = 0) (out= 0)(stored 0%)
    adding: WEB-INF/web.xml(in = 257) (out= 195)(deflated 24%)
    adding: outloop.jsp(in = 178) (out= 126)(deflated 29%)

    But following the deploy web application link from the System application Server admin console seems to fail. I get this message.

    An error has occurred.

    Deploying application in domain failed; Error loading deployment descriptors for second Line 10 Column 11 -- The content of element type "web-app" must match "(icon?,display-name?,description?,distributable?,context-param*,servlet*,servlet-mapping*,session-config?,mime-mapping*,welcome-file-list?,error-page*,taglib*,resource-ref*,security-constraint*,login-config?,security-role*,env-entry*,ejb-ref*)". ; requested operation cannot be completed Error loading deployment descriptors for second Line 10 Column 11 -- The content of element type "web-app" must match "(icon?,display-name?,description?,distributable?,context-param*,servlet*,servlet-mapping*,session-config?,mime-mapping*,welcome-file-list?,error-page*,taglib*,resource-ref*,security-constraint*,login-config?,security-role*,env-entry*,ejb-ref*)".

    Any idea where I would get started troubleshooting something like that?

    Depending on your environment versions it looks like you've either got an error in your web.xml or it is the wrong version.

    Can you post your web.xml?

    From the error, it's absolutely that your web.xml document does not conform to the syntax. Check at line 10 column 11.

    Dear one as of my knowledge you have to restart your server after each change of web.xml

    You have to make changes in web.xml by including servlet-name, servlet-mapping and uri's so on

    Post your web.xml.
