I have a strange problem with the RI (beta-Q4, 2004 version)
I and a few of my colleagues are trying to get familiar with this, we have various windows systems, and a Solaris 9 box.
Some of us find that we build the "converter" example application from the J2EE Tutorial and get deployment failures. Closer investigation shows that the .ear files are failing to verify. So far, this has only happened under windows. However, it's happened to three of us, while six others (five on various windows variants, and one on the Solaris box) have perfect success.
In desperation, I copied the working ear file from the Solaris box to my windows sytems, and found that the exact same ear file that verifies correctly on Solaris, fails to verify under windows.
