Subject problem while loading validation.xml
Date Wed, 19 May 2004 14:47:03 GMT
Hi mailing list,

today quite a strange (at least in my opinion) behaviour of my struts application. I'm developing
an application based on weblogic 8.1 SP2. So far so good, everything works fine (struts and
tiles), but as soon as i add the validator plugin in the struts-config.xml and redeploy my
application, weblogic throws the below mentioned exception while loading both validation.xml
and validation-rules.xml. I'm not quite sure if the problem is struts or weblogic related,
but i hope, the struts mailing list is able to help me solving this problem. 

Additional information: 
	- web archive (.war) is located inside an enterprise archive (.ear)
	- deploying the war-file individually leads to the same exception
	- deployment failed in different weblogic domains -> same exception
	- validation configuration should be correct (i have another running application (.war),
that works with validation on weblogic)
	- deployment also failed using the validator.xml and validator-rules.xml of the running application
	- the validator xml files are well-formed and validated

I appreciate any ideas, as i spent way too much time trying to solve this problem...
