Stupid spelling mistake in application.xml...
<!DOCTYPE applciation PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD J2EE Application 1.3//EN" "http://java.sun.com/dtd/application_1_3.dtd">
should be application.... redeployed and all is well... now can someone explain WHY this caused the connection timeout?
Is the system really hitting java.sun.com??
No, there's a local resolver for the DTDs.
I have the same problem. I work within my proxy the firewall stopping my jboss application to look for the external dtd.
You mentioned about the ability to perform the local lookup. Do you know how to set up jboss to look for the local dtd.
Thank you heap in advanced.
