Error when importing the ear file in NWDS

Hello Guru's,

We are upgrading our landscape from Portal 7.02 to Portal 7.4. And we have couple of custom components which we are trying to migrate.

We have the EAR files of the components from 7.02.

Installed the NWDS 7.31 and associated Java Version 1.6.0_45.

Here is the procedure using to import the file to NWDS 7.31.

File - Import - SAP NetWeaver Portal - EAR File - Select the Archive .ear file, give the project name and the Project Root Folder

I have administrator access to the system.

Please help me in resolving the issue.

    Hi Pramod,

    Try to create the project in your desktop/Laptop other than C:/. Even though you have admin rights there will be some restrictions in windows when you try to write some files in C:/. So try with some other directory.

    If not, You can check the permissions for you in the "Downloads" folder whether you have "Full Access".

    • Instead of importing EAR file follow the steps below:

      Here are the steps we did to fix the issue:

      1. Open NWDS 7.31 - File - Import - Existing Project into Workspace - Provide the project from old nwds 7.02 location

      2. Once project is imported to Workspace, right click and Development Component and Convert Project to Development Component

      3. We user Local and created the Development Component and carried the changes that need to done.

      4. For deploying you have 2 options:

      a. Deploy from NWDS

      b. Go to View Component Browser and Right Click on the local component where you have the development component and EXPORT, this process will create SCA file which can be deployed using JSPM.

      Hope this helps.

    Hi Pramod,

    Try placing the EAR file in a different folder (desktop?) and try again.
