I downloaded the ADF Faces Components Demo for version 188.8.131.52.0 from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/adf/downloads/index.html . I tried following instructions :ADF Faces Components Demo Install Instructions
This is getting downloaded as rcf-dvt-demo.zip. I renamed it to rcf-dvt-demo.war.
Then I tried to create a project from this war... and got following error :
The project file "C:\rcf-dvt-demo.war!\Project.jpr" is not valid. The file name may contain illegal characters, it may be too long, or permissions for this file or one of it's parent directories may be restricted.
Please help . Am i downloading from correct location and following the correct instructions.
When I downloaded through firefox, it was getting downloaded as war. But I am getting the same Error for that war when trying to create the ProjectFromWar file.
I know this is silly, but it didn't worked even after 4-5 downloads. I am selecting the correct version in dropdown and then downloading.. Being human, it is possible to download wrong version once, But I attempted the download from different browsers i.e. 4-5 times.
Just read this thread again. The filename you posted is wrong and contains an illegal character.
I wonder how you get this project name. It looks like you try to build the project inside the War file. You should create a new application and inside this application workspace you add a new 'project from war'.
Good Catch Timo ... Lot of thanks.
Still I will put down the silly mistake of overlooking the wizard.
I was doing the correct thing - "create a new application and inside this application workspace you add a new 'project from war'." But mistake was .. First step of wizard it is project name and path,, and then second step is war location... and in hurry I was giving the project name and war location in first step.
