Unable To Install Agile Patch And Deploy Application Due To Corrupted application.ear

(Doc ID 1473915.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Agile PLM Framework - Version and later
Generic Linux


When attempting to install Agile patch, the following error occurs.

"Error expanding /AgilePLM/app/agile/agile93x/agileDomain/applications/applicaiton.ear
java.util.zip.ZipException: archive is not a ZIP archive"


File size of application.ear is smaller than the backup application.ear file having date in the file extension.
For example, application.ear is 88,087,585 KB, but application.ear.06-28-2012_12.03.16-PM is 224,295,096 KB.

The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:

  1. Depending on the type of application server running, do below
    [OAS] Undeploy Agile
    [WebLogic] Stop Agile Application Server
  2. Run Install_Patch to install the patch
