    TestNG: java.util.zip.ZipException

    Chris Lowe Apprentice

      When running a TestNG Seam test, the following exception occurred:

      Failed to invoke @Configuration method org.jboss.seam.mock.SeamTest.init:java.util.zip.ZipException: The system cannot find the path specified

      My colleague spent a good few hours tracking the cause of this message. Since Google didn't turn up much and being a good citizen, I'm posting a solution here in case anyone comes up against it.

      It turned out to be simply down to the fact that the path to the workspace/project had spaces in it. I.e. a new project was created under the default Eclipse workspace location on Windows - C:\Documents and Settings\\workspace. Some part of the embedded EJB startup didn't like this fact and threw the rather cryptic exception.

      Moving the workspace/project to a location with no spaces (e.g. C:/seam-workspace) resolved the issue.

      Hope this helps,

      Chris.
