Well, the obvious answer is exactly what it says, namely that there is a file that it expects to find, but dies not. Since the exception was thrown in the util.zip method, I would expect that the missing file is a zip compressed file. The fact that the exception was caught by weblogic.management.ApplicationException leads me to believe that the problem is either a missing or malformed EAR file. Are there any other messages when this happens?

If you do not know which file causes the error, you could use the truss command to trace the system calls. The open system call that occurs just before the error is printed out should indicate what the file was. Look for an open call that returns ENOENT, the last one before the error.
