J2EE ear deployment

for development environment, i am using exploded for deployment.

yesterday is my last day in the previous project, to keep it as the “safe” flow, i am trying to compress those exploded back to ear. the tool i m using is winrar.

however, its not working. throwing some exception saying, zip property issue.

change the format from rar format to zip format, then it works.

weblogic application.xml

i just finished solving another simple task.

problem description:
there are three projects inside the application. Front_End, Pricing_Admin_Engine, and Help_Context.

deployment of previous two applications have no problem, since they are standard Java EE applications. deployment Help_Context have problems. As the project structure is

the root of this project is CFC_Static_Content, and the required resource is at CFC_Static_Content\cfc_static\help\db\enUS\content\cfc.xml
once deployed as it is, the url would be
CFC_Static_Content/cfc_static/help/db/enUS/content/cfc.xml, while required is /help/db/enUS/content/cfc.xml.

for some, this is a very simple problem, and the solution is also very simple, just add a META-INF folder, to contain new created application.xml, inside which specifiy as

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
