Hi, We are running WAS v4.0.3 on a Win2K server. I am trying to deploying a war file containg Servlets using the Admin Console. I always get the following error. Exception: Cannot expand the ear file under E:\WebSphere\AppServer\installedApps\CLCS_GUI.ear com.ibm.ejs.sm.exception.OpException: Cannot expand the ear file under E:\WebSphere\AppServer\installedApps\CLCS_GUI.ear -------- com.ibm.ejs.sm.client.command.ExecutionException: Error during install applicationat com.ibm.ejs.sm.client.command.InstallEnterpriseAppCommand.execute(InstallEnterpriseAppCommand.java:84)at com.ibm.ejs.sm.client.command.CommandManager$ExecutionThread.run(CommandManager.java:264)at com.ibm.ejs.sm.client.command.ThreadPool$PooledThread.run(ThreadPool.java:89) Then I also noticed that it did create the appropriate directory and also expanded about half of the classes in the WAR file and then failed. It almost seems like it gets halfway through expanding the EAR file and then fails. As all I have is servlets and JSPs I am just creating a WAR file using the AAT and then trying to install it as a Stand-alone module using the Admin Console. Is there a step I am missing there?? Also I have all my servlets in a directory structure that I exported from Visual Age for Java v3.5 . I add all my JSP and HTML files as resource files when I create the jar. Any direction will be very much appreciated! I am completely stumped now. Thanks, Veni.
Yes I verified the file and it was fine. I found the solution though, one of the class files in the WAR file had a very long file name and WAS had problems with this and failed to expand the ear file when it reached that class name. Once that was fixed, I could deploy the application successfully. Thanks, Veni.
