    jboss 5.1 jboss-web.xml is not well formed ?

    Gerry Matte Apprentice

      I've been converting a jboss 4 web application to be compliant with jboss 5.1

       

      One of the webapp XML files that now has a new prolog (schema now replacing a DTD) is the jboss-web.xml file is causing jboss 5.1 to throw exceptions claiming that the jboss-web.xml file is not well formed.  The XML editor in eclipse and my external XML editor (Altova XMLspy) both consider the file to be well formed and compliant with the schema.

       

      Below are the former (jboss 4) and current (jboss 5.1) versions of the file.  Can anyone see a cause for the exception shown at the end of this post ?

       

      Thanks in advance
