i'm still quite new to java and xml also. i am trying at the time to get a tutorial working that is located at:
However when i do as told in the tutorial to write the Web.xml i get an error message:
The value of attribute "xsi:schemaLocation" associated with an element type "web-app" must not contain the '<' character.
this ist the web.xml from the tutorial:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee" xmlns:web="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_2_5.xsd" xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee <a href="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_2_5.xsd">http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_2_5.xsd"</a> id="WebApp_ID" version="2.5">
<servlet-name>Jersey REST Service</servlet-name>
<servlet-name>Jersey REST Service</servlet-name>

even though the error message seems to make clear what i have to do to fix it. i can't figure it out. can some please help a helpless xml greenhorn ?

Welcome to JavaRanch. It seems that the software running dzone.com makes active links of things that look like URLs - which sometimes makes sense, but not here. It should read:
xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_2_5.xsd"

... and you should disregard that this forum software here does the same thing :-)
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
