help please

I have a seam EAR  project that used to deploy - and has now stopped.

essentially its doing an exploded deploy (at least i cant find any .ear archive in the source tree.

the EarContent/META-INF/application.xml file in the eclipse workspace ear project, and all the code compiles.

when i start jboss in eclipse and tell it to deply the project - eclipse copies the ear project to the deploy directory - however it doesnt copy the application.xml for the jboss deploy directory META-INF directory!

it does copy the jboss-app.xml file though.

the deployer reader then fails with the error.

worse i have another simple app (hello world) and that does deolpy the application.xml file - but i cant see what controls this.  My real app just doesnt.

I have had other problems when you deploy and jboss tools doesnt deploy the seam jar files - however if i copy them in by hand - the deployer detects that and then completes the deploy - 

cant understand that either.

get a problem un undeploy as well where is essentially reports a similar problem - whilst annoying this doesnt usually stop you redeploying.

whats going on - any ideas please i cant work like this its stopping me get on with the design
