We are trying to import some XSDs into a BPEL project using "New File-->New External XSD Schema Location". Trying to
import External XSDs using a shared network folder on Windows does not seem to be supported when using either the URL or
the "From Local File System" option. The files do not appear when specifying a Windows share using the \\host\share
notation. Also, the dialogue becomes somewhat unresponsive when this is attempted.
I mapped my unix home directory to a drive on the windows PC. I then used the "From Local File System" Browse button to
navigate to the desired folder on the mapped network drive and was able to import the XSD file. Didnt see any issue nor
did the dialog become unreponsive.
I typed the following in the "From Local File System" text area:
and can see that the code tries to copy the file but runs into an issue. There seems to be an issue with core and have
filed the following bug:
[Issue 124985] New - FileUtil.toFileObject() returns null for network shared file
Where using the "From URL" is concerned, you cant use \\host\share there. You need to have a http location.
Please use the workaround of mapping the shared network folder to a drive on the PC and you should be able to import the
I got same results as Sonali.
This bug depends on 124985 and will be fixed whenever 124985 will be fixed. There is no bug fix required from our
side..Closing as dup as discussed in XML iteam
