2406689 - Uploading zipped UWL Configuration fails with error "Unable to read File"


When trying to upload to the UWL a ZIP file containing an XML configuration file together with the .properties files, following error shows up in the screen:


... (Configuration): com.sap.netweaver.bc.uwl.UWLException: ... Unable to read File: <name_of_zip_file>

This happens no matter where the ZIP file is located (locally or remotely) and which web browser is used to perform such operation.

If extracting the XML file from inside of the ZIP file and uploading the XML file alone, it works fine. The problem only happens when trying to upload a ZIP file, containing the XML file and the .properties files.

When checking the trace messages (according to SAP KBA 2261632), following Warning message is found:
