    Problem with deployoing ear on JBoss AS7 while it worked on AS5

    Ankit Kumar Newbie

      Hi Everyone,

                        I have an ear to be deployed on JBoss AS7. The ear file NxServices.ear has the following structure.

       

           |- META-INF [It has some manifest files and .xml files]

           |- lib [Containing jars]

           |- xyz.jar

           |- abc.jar

           |- a-file.rar

           |- some-xml-files.xml

           |- one-web.war

       

      It is working fine on JBoss AS5 but when we are trying to migrate it to JBoss AS7, it is generating error as following

      ==================================================================================================================================

      ======================================================================================================================================

       

      The things I have tried are:

      1). I have tried remove all the xml files from ear root that is |- .xmls and put them in |- META-INF. But got the same error.

       

      2). Then I tried remove the |- some-rar-file.rar and accordingly updated the application.xml in |- META-INF but it also did not resolve the error.

      3). Also tried a combination of the 1 and 2 mentioned above.

       

      4). Also tried remove the .war and accordingly updated application.xml in |- META-INF but still got the same error.

      5). also tried 3 and 4 together but no success.

       

      I do not understand what it is trying to parse first that it is not able to open and saying unable to open zip file.

      I do not know if there is some problem with some xml file particularly being used in the project.

       

      Please help I need it solved very badly.

       

      Thanks

          Where is this path ["/C:/jbossAS7/bin/content/NxServices.ear"] coming from?

          Deployment folder is usually something like $JBOSS_HOME/standalone/deployments.

            Hi Frank,

                         I am not even able to see the content directory within /C:/jbossAS7/bin dir. May be it is created by the JBoss deployer at the "deploying" time and the deleted. I always copy the deployables to $JBOSS_HOME/standalone/deployments dir. And even in this case also I have done the copying to the same dir, the deployments within JBOSS_HOME.

              What does the application.xml and jboss-app.xml look like in the .ear file?

               

              Also note that it's better to use the latest released WildFly version Downloads · WildFly instead of using JBoss AS 7 which was released almost 2 years ago.

                Hi jaikiran,

                              I can not use wildfly as of now because of some unavoidable reasons. Following are the structures of jboss.xml and Application.xml.
