Subject Re: Error opening the editor
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2008 19:16:42 GMT
Hi again Tim, if that is the case, then I totally misunderstood the problem. If 
you manually add the geronimo-web.xml yourself, just use the correct namespace as 
below for Geronimo 2.1 as below.....

<web-app xmlns="">

One thing we spent a lot of time on in the 2.1 release was to properly handle the 
current namespaces supported by the Geronimo Server. Unfortunately, it looks like 
we missed some cases where old namespaces can still be used. For example, when an 
older namespace is used in a project that is imported into the GEP we convert it 
on the fly. It looks like though we still need to handle older namespaces better. 
I think we may have a JIRA already for this problem, but if not I shall open a 
new one. Thanks very much for the feedback....
