SEVERE: Parse Fatal Error at line 5 column 6: The processing instruction target matching "[xX][mM][lL]" is not allowed.
org.xml.sax.SAXParseException; systemId: jndi:/localhost/EHR_webapp/WEB-INF/web.xml; lineNumber: 5; columnNumber: 6; The processing instruction target matching "[xX][mM][lL]" is not allowed.

You usually get this if you've damaged an XML file - in this particular case, your WEB-INF/web.xml.

XML wants the Processing Instruction that identifies the content as XML to start on the first line in column 1:


If the initial angle bracket has leading spaces (or worse yet, leading text) OR if there are blank lines, the XML validator is likely to reject it and give this message.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
