Created a web application using Workspace 1.5. When
deploying it to EAServer 5.3 recieve error:
java.io.IOException: Exception parsing descriptor null

Research suggested looking at web.xml file. Found that the
web.xml file included additional items in <web-app> tag:
<web-app id="WebApp_ID" version="2.4"
xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee
http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/web-app_2_4.xsd">

web.xml file created from PB web target tag is only
<web-app>?

How might this error be resolved?

Thanks, Rodney

More detailed comparison of the web.xml file created from
Powerbuilder found that it included a DOCTYPE that reference
Version 2.3:

<!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC '-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web
Application 2.3//EN'
'http://java.sun.com/dtd/web-app_2_3.dtd'>

Added that into the file and removed all xml references and
deployment to EAServer was successful.

Working web.xml file is as follows:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC '-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web
Application 2.3//EN'
'http://java.sun.com/dtd/web-app_2_3.dtd'>
<web-app>
<display-name>test001</display-name>
<welcome-file-list>
<welcome-file>index.html</welcome-file>
<welcome-file>index.htm</welcome-file>
<welcome-file>index.jsp</welcome-file>
<welcome-file>default.html</welcome-file>
<welcome-file>default.htm</welcome-file>
<welcome-file>default.jsp</welcome-file>
</welcome-file-list>
</web-app>

Thanks, Rodney

Hi Rodney,

Does the web application you created contain the version 2.4 deployment
descriptor?

EAServer 5.3 does not support 2.4 deployment yet. EAServer 6.0 will have
the support.

EAServer 5.3 does not support 2.4 web module yet. EAServer 6.0 will have
the support.
