Subject Re: Missing web.xml file causes UnknownModuleTypeException
Date Tue, 06 Mar 2012 10:05:39 GMT
Maybe if it has no WEB-INF and no META-INF either, it can be considered the 
same way as an empty WEB-INF folder?

That would cater for ear but allow Tomcat-7 simple no web-xml apps to work 
immediately.

What do you think?

Best Regards,
Neale
