when i execute my ant script to deploy my application to weblogic, i get the following error message.

[java] weblogic.descriptor.DescriptorException: VALIDATION PROBLEMS WERE FOUND
[java] problem: cvc-complex-type.2.1: Element 'distributable@http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee' with empty content type cannot have text or element content.:<null>

what causes it?

Hi Lynn,

The ant task is stating the your weblogic deployment descriptor file failed XML validation. I would take your XML file and validate it independently (the ant error message probably won't give you as much info as a proper XML editor).
