The XML file claims to be UTF-8, but the xml parser
I exactly get the same exception when I deploy my test.jar.
My ejb-jar.xml and jboss.xml are perfect or atleast looks exactly the same as the working ones. But I don't know why I get this exception suddenly.
There's no other xml parser in the classpath like xerces or anything..
Kindly direct me.
I had the same problem. It was a charakter like ä in
the class comment. The first sentence of it was used by the Lomboz-Plugin to generate a comment for the description of my entity-bean in the ejb-jar. Now I explain the functionality of classes without using special german characters.
Avoid funny german umlauts or other non UTF-8 conform characters or use another encoding for your xml like ISO-8859-1 or ISO-8859-15.
