Error description

  • Abstract:
    
    Attempts to export an EAR results in an error
    'org.eclipse.core.commands.ExecutionException: Error exporting
    [EAR name]'
    
    Problem:
    
    This can occur if you have Linked Resources in your workspace.
    Recreate steps are:
    1)Create a directory structure like the following and include
    simple text files:
    c:\temp\files\file1.txt
    c:\temp\files\directory\file2.txt
    
    2) Create a Dynamic Web Project with simple class files created
    under a package.
    3) Expand the [Web Project]\Java Resources\src folder
    4) Right click on one of your package names and select Import ?
    General ? File System. Next.
    5) Navigate to the c:\temp\files\ directory.
    6) Check mark the 'files' directory in the file window. This
    will check mark the file1.txt file as well.
    7) Take the default for 'Into folder' and leave the 'Overwrite
    existing resources without warning' and 'Create complete folder
    structure' blank.
    8) Select Advanced. Select 'Create links in workspace', 'Create
    virtual folders', and 'Create link locations relative to:
    PROJECT_LOC'.
    9) Select Finish. Do a Project ? Clean.
    
    RESULT: This will add to the workspace file.txt under [package
    name] and file2.txt under [package name].directory.
    
    10) Try to export the EAR file. You will get the following
    error:
