    Unable to process deployment descriptor for context and @Web

    Mark Lassiter Newbie


      I've created some JbossWS web services using the top-down approach and wsconsume. I'm deploying a Stateless EJB implementation of one of my services to JBoss 5.1.0.

      It all deploys fine, but I get this warning:

      WARNING [config] Unable to process deployment descriptor for context '/myapp'

      My EJB looks like this:

      @WebContext( contextRoot="/myapp" )
      public class MyServiceBean implements com.company.webservices.myapp.v1.MyServicePortType {

      My deployment package is a .ear file with the following contents:


      The contents of the application.xml is:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <application xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee"
       xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/application_5.xsd"

      I spent a lot of time searching around the internet and the forums, and the best I can figure is that JBoss wants me to configure the context some place. The two examples I found reference some context.xml file that can be either in the WEB-INF folder of the war or configured as part of the JBoss server (outside my ear).

      I was not able to locate a DTD for this context.xml file and I'd really like to include it in my .ear. I'll generate a war if necessary, but want to be sure I understand what JBoss expects to see.

      Any help is greatly appreciated,
