Here is one of those friggin’ annoying problems. I saw this about 6 months ago while “trying out” the Eclipse Web Tools Project. Can somebody tell me what the heck this error is:
CHKJ3000E: WAR Validation Failed: java.lang.NullPointerException
It’s an error tied to the root of my Dynamic Web Project. There is nothing tricky going on in the project. It’s actually a very basic “Hello World” project testing a new web framework. Anyhow, I have to believe it’s somehow tied to the WTP.
I posted something about the problem the last time I saw it on the Eclispe WTP forums and got nothing helpful back. Anyhow, the thread can be read at: http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.webtools/msg09932.html
The ironic thing is that about a week or so ago I was emailed by somebody much smarter then me who was having the problem. He had no idea what the error meant and couldn’t find a solution. Hopefully, he’ll read this and have a solution. 🙂
