can be used - among other tasks - to calculate the Java Source Folder of the Web Module.
If the Java Source Folder does not physically exist, such an error will occur. This problem can happen if you import the project from a Source Code Management System.
The Source Folder name is referenced by the
.classpath file contained in the project. If there are no source files when the project is first shared in the Source Code Management system, it is possible that the source folder will not be created when importing the project into Rational Application Developer.
Diagnosing the problem
Follow these steps to diagnose the problem:
- Right click on the web project
- Select Properties > Java Build Path > Source
- Make a note of the name of the source folder(s) listed in box Source Folders on the build path
- Look at the file system with the Windows Explorer
- Verify that all the source folders effectively exists
Resolving the problem
- Create any the source folders that do not exist in the Microsoft Windows Explorer (Make sure to respect the capitalization of the folder names as they appear in the Java Build Path dialog)
- Click on the Web Project in the Package Explorer or Project Explorer in Rational Application Developer, and press
F5to refresh the project structure
- Generate the Web Service again
