Deployment Problem - JBAS018014: Failed to parse xml descriptor

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We are migrating an application from jboss 4 to eap 6.2.2.
    The application uses the jar : ui.components-1.0.jar , which is packaged in the war. When deploying the application on eap 6.2.2 we have the following error :
jboss.deployment.subunit."archie-ear-2.3.0.jboss6-SNAPSHOT.ear"."archie-war-2.3.0.jboss6-SNAPSHOT.war".PARSE: JBAS018733: Failed to process phase PARSE of subdeployment "archie-war-2.3.0.jboss6-SNAPSHOT.war" of deployment "archie-ear-2.3.0.jboss6-SNAPSHOT.ear"

The log shows a problem with the file ui.tld found in the jar, knowing that on jboss 4 the application is deployed without any problems. Is it the version of the xsd used by this file that causes the problem ? I couldn't find in the jboss specifications any information about this xsd. Or is it the content of the file itself (ui.tld) that is not valid. Does eap 6.2.2 make extra validations that were not done in version 4 ? Any suggestions for a solution are welcomed.

  • Application has a dependency on spring-modules-validation-0.9.jar. While migrating a Weblogic application to Jboss, the application is failed to deploy on JBoss EAP 6.2. The Jar (and also the version 0.8) works fine with Weblogic server. But, it gives following exception while deploying in EAP 6.2
