Hello,

I am unable to load my webapp. The error message is:

FAIL - Encountered exception java.io.IOException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: java.lang.IllegalStateException: zip file closed

Tomcat: 4.1.30
JVM: 1.4.2-b28
OS: AS/400 version: V5R2M0

Any help is appreciated.

Are you "packaging" your web application as a zip file?

If not mistaken all JSP/Servlet web applications are to be packaged as a WAR(web archive) file not a zip archive.

You can use the "jar" command to archive your web application.

jar -cvf <web_appl_name>.war *

It is being deployed as a war file.
