I get following Exception, when I submit a form with a command button:



I can't find out what causes this exception.

I wish I could give more help, but there's a limit to what I can do without making a billable project out of it and that's not why I'm here. You do seem to have a nasty one though.

Offhand, I would suspect one of 2 things, though:

1. You are attempting to embed a ZIP-format objects in an HTML webpage. HTML is text-only, so retrieving and unzipping a binary object transferred via a text channel isn't likely to end up happy. I don't really think this is is, because I don't think that there's any way that the unzip part would happen automatically anyway, but I could be wrong.

2. You have a corrupt ZIP/jar file on your server. This is more likely the case, although again I'm not sure where this is coming from. I have had issues where when my WAR was on a network share, Tomcat couldn't properly unzip and deploy it, though.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
