WLS 10.3.x: Deployment faild with ‘Invalid Archive’

I run into a strange problem today while working an a presentation about a ‘One Click Build’ process. Part of the presentation is building an EAR archive which can be deployed to a WLS server (10.3.5 + Sherman + update2) running under Ubuntu Linux 11.04. The application is build with JDev 11.1.2.1.0. First time I build the EAR and deployed it to my test server all went OK.
I added some files to my project rebuild the ear and got the following

A look into the log revealed nothing to shed light on this error

For all searching for this exception I include the stack trace as text here too:

The other log files available didn’t help either. So started to remove the files I added after the last successful deployment. I tagged this version, so I new where to start. In the end I found the file:
Einführung.pdf
As you see the file contains a German special character ‘ü’. It turned out that an EAR file should not contain files with special characters in their name. I did not test this on a WLS running under Window, as I don’t have one installed, but I guess it’s working there as I did not get this error running the application on the integrated WLS under a WIN 7 64Bit system.
