The standard HTML tags for HTML/HEAD/TITLE and BODY are also in the example, but where removed by the forum.
I tried modifying the web-app tag to be the following:
< web-app xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee"
I'm using Tomcat 5 with JBoss 3.2.4 (Was about to test with JBoss4)
After doing that (found this after looking through the forums for several more hours) it still didn't work.
Then.. ohh-yea-gee that's right.. the FREEKIN' CACHE!
So.. I stopped the server, removed tmp and work directories for my app, and it worked.
I face exactly the same problem ...
I also had the same problem with JBoss 3.2.3/Tomcat 5
Any ideas meanwhile?
