I am using geronimo 2.1.6 with jetty on Microsoft Platform using Java 1.6

My probem is that deployment fails with little description on whats wrong. The problem seems to be annotation related but unfortunately that doesn't help me that much as nearly all my code in this project is heavily annotated: The ear I try to deploy contains two web services implemented as JAX-WS stateless session beans, most of the  business logic is implemented in a number of JPA entities, one method is invoking a remote web service. The web services have some fairly complex arguments so there are a JAXB component here too with JAXB classes generated from XSD descriptions.

I am mainly looking for more descriptive error messages. The messages I get during deployment is shown below
