Subject RE: Can't Get an Ant-generated EAR to open with J2EE reference ed ition Deploytool
Date Fri, 13 Jul 2001 10:21:30 GMT
Hi Marc,

I 'engineered'(alright stole) the Ear task from the War task for Weblogic
deployments. Ear is the same as war except for the different deployment
descriptors. In any case they both inherit down from zip so this could be
the root cause. The upshot of this is that you get zips defaults in your ear
(!) which could be causing a problem.

You could try turning compression off by setting the compress=false
attribute (wild guess).
You say that ear-ing the files doesn't work but winzipping does - points at
zip again but are you sure there are no differences in the archive?
