Question / Problem:
These errors display when attempting java -jar kapplets.war to deploy new Kapplets.
Answer / Solution:
The application.properties file is incorrectly named. Verify the spelling and, from a CMD prompt, verify the file name does not have a .txt extension (created when right-clicking to create a new text file). For example, Windows Explorer will show the file as application.properties, however, the icon will be a text file icon. When viewed from a CMD prompt, the file is actually application.properties.txt.
Correct file name is application.properties and should be renamed in the CMD prompt to ensure that.
