I am using Eclipse 3.4.0 to generate an EAR for a jboss-4.2.3.GA installation. It is a very simple (my first) application and everything seems to be in place as expected from an ear except for the application.xml file. I am getting the following error on the server:

19:53:34,297 INFO  [Http11Protocol] Starting Coyote HTTP/1.1 on http-

which seems to be justified since the directory structure I see in the ear file is the following:


What am I missing? Why isn't the application.xml file generated. I guess I can generate it manually but that's not the point. Can anybody help please? 
I know this question should belong to an Eclipse newsgroup but I couldn't get any response there.
