    Migrating from 3.0.5 to 3.0.8 (redux!)

    poweribo Newbie

      i opted to try upgrading from 3.0.5 to 3.0.8 instead of 3.2.3 to minimize surprises. still i get some exceptions from an otherwise perfectly running enterprise application on 3.0.5.

      i get these messages, even after converting all xml encodings to "UTF-8" :

      [ObjectName: jboss.j2ee:jndiName=catalyst.PrivilegeHome,service=EJB
      state: FAILED

      what should i do to fix this? thanx!

          Your deployment descriptors don't appear to be valid.

            without changing a bit and replicating exact configuration, the web app works flawlessly in 3.0.5.
            does this mean 3.0.8 is not backward compatible? or has it introduced new format in xml configs?

              There's no new format, it appears your descriptors may have been flawed in the first place, but the deployment (or the parser) was more lenient before. It looks like SAX is not even able to find the root element. Try to validate your XML files and you'll see if there are any faults.

                >the deployment (or the parser) was more lenient before
                that what i thought so. ill check it out. the stack trace was not very helpful on pinpointing the exact prob though.

                btw, im looking at ejb-jar.xml, jboss.xml, jaws.xml. each ejb has its own, separate, set of config files. heres my sample ejb-jar descriptor for privilegeHome (reported as errorneous by jboss 3.0.8)

                  Hi I'm back and still cant make my webapp work. I validated and corrected all xml config files using the DTDs from jboss but still wont work on 3.0.8. Ive actually tried it on 3.0.6 and 3.0.8.. same result.
                  basing from the stack traces, my untrained eye says that the prob is on the jaws.xml (the app is using ejb 1.1). here is the sample jaws.xml that i have (which jboss says erroneous)

                  2004-03-22 16:06:30,399 WARN [org.jboss.system.ServiceController] Problem creating service jboss.j2ee:jndiName=catalyst.PrivilegeHome,service=EJB

                  heres my sample jaws.xml thats causing the prob(?) :

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

                  any ideas? pls note that all xml descriptors was already validated and has no errors.
