    tsip Newbie

      Hello

      I am testing for the first time Jboss and ant 1.4. I am building ejb files with ant and i am getting the following error:
      [ejbjar] 1 deployment descriptors located.
      [ejbjar] Could not resolve ( publicId: -//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Enterprise Java
      Beans 1.1//EN, systemId: http://java.sun.com/j2ee/dtds/ejb-jar_1_1.dtd) to a local entity

      I have use an example of javaworld website(http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-09-2000/ejbframe/jw-0929-ejbframe.zip
      ). So i supposse that those file are correct. I have changed the setting as it use to be. But i have no clue what this error means.

      Thanks

          1. Did you change the weblogic task to the jboss task?

          2. If youare not connected to the internet when you use a xml parser it will try to look up the dtd via the url if it has not been told where to find a local copy of the dtd. The jboss/weblogic task supports a nested dtd tag that allows you to specifiy the local location of that file.









          You will need to download the dtd and in this case put it in c:\jboss\lib\dtd.

            i have actually internet connection. and i can visualize/access the dtd file itself.

            I am actually building the ejb with the option jbossejb, so it will look at the following task:








            As you can see i have add the option that you have proposal and putting the dtd file in the right directory. After running: ant jbossejb. I still get the same error ( [ejbjar] Could not resolve ( publicId: -//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Enterprise JavaBeans 1.1//EN, systemId: http://java.sun.com/j2ee/dtds/ejb-jar_1_1.dtd) to a local entity)
            It seems that the ant doesn't look this option of this file. It will loop a the other .xml file with the parameter of deployment:

            <?xml version="1.0"?>

            <!DOCTYPE ejb-jar PUBLIC '-//Sun Microsystems,Inc.//DTD Enterprise JavaBeans 1.1//EN' 'http://java.sun.com/j2ee/dtds/ejb-jar_1_1.dtd'>

            <ejb-jar>
            <enterprise-beans>

            <ejb-name>frameworkTester</ejb-name>
            framework.test.ejb.FrameworkTesterHome
            framework.test.ejb.FrameworkTester
            .....
            <ejb-</ejb-jar>

            I have changed the second line into the follwing: <!DOCTYPE ejb-jar PUBLIC '-//Sun Microsystems,Inc.//DTD Enterprise JavaBeans 1.1//EN' 'c:\dtd\ejb-jar_1_1.dtd'>


            Then i get the following error:
            D:\java\test\build.xml:73: SAXException while parsing 'framework\test\ejb\FrameworkTester-ejb-jar.xml'. This probably indicates badly-formed XML. Details: Relative URI "c:\dtd\ejb-jar_1_1.dtd"; can not be resolved without a document URI.
            It seems only to accept http protocol

            I have also try with a webserver locally install in my machine(hostname:etsswpc05)
            'http://etsswpc05:8083/ejb-jar.dtd'

            Then i get the same error:
            ( [ejbjar] Could not resolve ( publicId: -//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Enterprise JavaBeans 1.1//EN, systemId: http://etsswpc05:8083/ejb-jar.dtd) to a local entity)

            Have yoou any further idea what could cause the problem?

                Sorry the line



                should be




                This will then add the jboss.xml files and jaws.xml files to the generated jar.
