hello,
 
This is an extract of datasource deployment plan which gave me an error as
"invalid URI specified at index..." when I tried to deploy the datasource:
 
<?xml version="1.0"?>

<connector xmlns=" http://geronimo.apache.org/xml/ns/j2ee/connector "
  version="1.5"
  configId="MysqlDatabase" 
  parentId="org/apache/geronimo/Server">

<dependency>
  <uri>
    mysql/jars/mysql-connector-java-3.1.8-bin.jar
  </uri>
</dependency>
After checking for a while I found that the <uri> tag had white space characters before the actual value. On trimming these white spaces, the datasource deployed successfully.
 
Why was not the white space characters ignored when the deployer processed the plan?
 
Thanks,
Rajiv
