    INIT_WAITING_DEPLOYER

    Bruce Goldstein Newbie

      I get the INIT_WAITING_DEPLOYER error when I try to deploy my ear file (i.e. copy it to the server/default/deploy directory). Any ideas???

          JBoss doesn't recognise something.

          Common errors/problems:
          1) Incorrect case of something.xml (most likely on windows which remembers the case, but doesn't always
          display it)
          2) Using web-inf/web.xml instead of WEB-INF/web.xml
          3) dom4j has a META-INF/info.xml

            I am on Unix and the case is correct (I already deployed on other app servers). I am not sure what dom4j would be doing here (is this used internally by jboss). Any other ideas???

              Post the full error.
              You'll probably find more info in server/default/log/server.log

                  If those jars are ears, JBoss will only recognise them
                  when they end with .ear

                    I got similar errors. After looking at the source codes, I found MainDeploy.java seems to complain this if the jar doesn't contain ejb-jar.xml, web.xml...

                    So, if you put a utility jar into an ear, you definitely got this error message. Is it better not to show the message, isn't it? After all, it is NOT an ERROR.
