    seeking help - deployment error (failed to load metadat)

    Carl Schwarcz Newbie

      With JBoss 3.04 I've transformed a working ear to one that fails to deploy. I get a null pointer exception from EJBDeployer.create. Is there any stand-alone verfication process I could try (similar to, but hopefully better than Sun's verifier)?

      Any suggestion as to what I've messed up?

      INFO [EARDeployer] Init J2EE application: file:/C:/jboss/server/default/deploy/grumpy.ear
      ERROR [URLDeploymentScanner] Failed to deploy: org.jboss.deployment.scanner.URLDeploymentScanner$DeployedUR
