    Failed to deploy EAR

    Dibyendu Majumdar Newbie

      Hi,

      I am trying to run a simple EJB 3.0 application in JBOSS. I am using 4.0.4RC1. When I deploy the application, the error I am getting is:

      13:00:05,906 ERROR [MainDeployer] Could not initialise deployment: file:/C:/jbos

      It seems that the deployer expects an application.xml file, but my understanding is that this file is no longer mandatory. The deployer should be able to figure out the EJB/WEB modules by examining the EAR file contents.

      For info, my EAR file contains:

      C:\prj\tpcc-ea\dist>jar tvf tpcc-ea.ear
      0 Thu Mar 09 12:49:24 GMT 2006 META-INF/
      106 Thu Mar 09 12:49:22 GMT 2006 META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
      0 Thu Mar 09 12:49:24 GMT 2006 lib/
      13768 Thu Mar 09 12:49:24 GMT 2006 lib/tpcc-persist.jar
      13411 Thu Mar 09 12:49:24 GMT 2006 tpcc-session.jar
      14264 Thu Mar 09 12:49:24 GMT 2006 tpcc-web.war

      I have tested this application under Glassfish. The application does not contain any container/vendor specific files.

      The source for this sample application can be found at:

      https://ejb3demo.dev.java.net/

      I am very keen to make this sample application work under JBOSS and would welcome any developers who would like to assist me with this task.

      Thanks and Regards
