Last updated on AUGUST 12, 2013

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.2.0 to 11.1.1.3.0 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

While deploying a WebCenter Task Flow Customizations application using "metadata" deployment profile no MAR file (metadata.mar) is generated.
The "metadata" deployment profiles is expected to generate a "metadata.mar" file.

Changes

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

  1. Download the WebCenter Task Flow Customization Supporting Files from here:
    Supporting Files


  2. Follow the white paper: WebCenter Task Flow Customization


  3. Apply the customizations by following this section of the above documentation:

    Applying Seeded Customizations to Deployed WebCenter Applications

    Skip steps 1-4 of the above section of the documentation to use the metadata deployment profile provided with the application. Then continue with the next steps to deploy the "metadata" Deployment Profile (In the Application Navigator, from the Application Menu, choose Deploy > metadata -> Deploy to JAR file).

    When deploying the existing "metadata" Deployment Profile you should see some messages similar to the next ones in the JDeveloper - Log:

    [02:12:20 PM] >>>> Warning: Unable to determine the target platform from the Profile. Using default...
    [02:12:20 PM] ---- Deployment started. ----
    [02:12:20 PM] Target platform is (Weblogic 10.3).
    [02:12:20 PM] Running dependency analysis...

    [02:12:22 PM] Elapsed time for deployment: 1 second
    [02:12:22 PM] ---- Deployment finished. ----

    This step doesn’t generate any errors.

    The deployment Summary screen shows the file will be created:

    Output File: D:\JDeveloper\mywork\SpacesTaskflowCustomizationApplication\deploy\metadata.mar


    However the "deploy" directory is not created and the "metadata.mar" file is not generated.
