    Getting Invalid persistence.xml Error parsing XML (line-1 : column -1): cvc-elt.1: Cannot find the declaration of element 'persistence'.?

    Haris laghari Newbie

      I am sorry since this question will be very descriptive i have tried every thing in my knowledge but the problem presist.


      i am trying to call my EJB function which has entity manager factory from  a java file and gets this error.


      I have pasted all the necessary files below please point what i am doing wrong.



      My persistence.xml file

      This file is present in META-INF


      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

      <persistence version="2.1" xmlns="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/persistence" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/persistence http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/persistence/persistence_2_1.xsd">

        <persistence-unit name="myPU">





            <property name="hibernate.show_sql" value="true" />

            <property name="hibernate.format_sql" value="true" />

            <property name="hibernate.dialect" value="org.hibernate.dialect.SQLServerDialect" />

            <property name="hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto" value="validate" />







      My EJB remote class


      public interface ContactDiaryRemote {

        public void helloWorld();

        public List<Employee> findAllEmployees();



      My stateless EJB remote class implementatin class



      public class ContactDiary implements ContactDiaryRemote {   



            * Default constructor.



          public ContactDiary() {

              // TODO Auto-generated constructor stub



        public void helloWorld(){

            System.out.println("Hello World");



        public List<Employee> findAllEmployees(){

        EntityManagerFactory emf =Persistence.createEntityManagerFactory("myPU");

        EntityManager em = emf.createEntityManager();

        EntityTransaction et = null;

        List<Employee> employeeList=null;





        javax.persistence.Query query = em.createQuery("EXEC GetAllEmployee");

        employeeList= query.getResultList();





        }catch(Exception e){







        return employeeList;




      So up till here every thing looks fine as server don't give any error and deploys the project here is what my console shows:
