When attempting to deploy a Custom WebCenter Application from JDeveloper into a Custom Managed Server, the following error occurs.

oracle.mds.config.MDSConfigurationException: MDS-01330: unable to load MDS configuration document

Steps To Reproduce:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Create a WebCenter Application in JDeveloper using the WebCenter template.
  2. Add Oracle Composer to a page so that users can customize the page at runtime.
  3. Deploy the application to a custom Managed Server on a WebCenter domain.
    Here you should see the error in JDeveloper Log

The JDeveloper Log shows the following errors:
