Any ideas?

I don’t know what exactly the cause of this problem might be (you probably may need to open an SR). What you can try is to redeploy wm_xt_portalrules.pdp component by touching (changing timestamp) on /server/default/deploy/wm_xt_portalrules.pdp file and then restarting a server.

Hi,

Can you please tell me what was the cause of the error?

I have seen this error when you deploy a CAF portlet application that has an empty web.xml file.

You might check your custom Portlet Apps and make sure that the .wars have the approrpriate xml files. Just a quick glance should do the trick.

Hi,
We have just reinstalled MWS (several times!) and the problem was not present anymore.

Were you able to solve this ?
