Hi All,

 

I am new to Geronimo and I was trying to deploy a small Enterprise Application (hello world) on Geronimo 1.0 M5. But I am getting following exception in the server side.

I am not sure for the error caused and My JDK version is 1.4.2. I have given details of my helloworld.ear below.

 

This is the helloworld.ear file contents:

I would appreciate if some expert could answer a solution.

 

 

Thanks in advance,
