I don't believe it!
Yes, it was a basic error, but lead me to erroneously believing I'd been infected with some netster spyware that had somehow gotten into Tomcat!
should have been this:
Somehow, I managed to type an extra 'u' into sourceforge :roll: .
The domain 'sourcefourge.net' has been taken by netster and the request gets redirected to the netster site, causing my XML to be invalid!
I'd have wasted a lot less time if I'd got an invalid URL message rather than finding netster in my output! Thanks a bunch netster - NOT!
Not amused, but happy to be back in action again.
I considered deleting my former post, but have left it here for the unlikely event that someone else hits the same problem. (And I thought I'd checked that XML soooo carefully!)
For the record, removing that extra 'u' results in a lovely set of creation messages beginning with a 'Mapping Class' message.
