Error description

  • Abstract:
    
    Attempts to importing an EAR file and then closing/reopening the
    workspace might result in the EAR project no longer being
    recognized.
    
    Problem:
    
    When you import an EAR file that was originally exported with
    metadata from Rational Application Developer v6.0.x in to a
    v7.5.x workspace, you are able to publish it to the server;
    however, after you close the workspace and reopen the workspace,
    the EAR project is no longer recognized as being valid in the
    workspace.  When you attempt to publish it to the server, you
    get the following informational message:
    
    'There are no projects that can be added or removed from the
    server.'
    
    Local fix:
    
    You can import just the WAR file in to a workspace and then
    chose to add the corresponding Web project to a new EAR project
    that will created during the import.
