Sometimes programs contain funny and/or odd error messages. Today I encountered one of those.
I was working on a project for a client and I restarted my Weblogic server to be on the receiving end of a strange error: ‘Belgium was unexpected at this time.’.
After half an hour I found the error. Apparently the Belgian eID toolkit (which I installed a few hours prior) added a classpath variable to ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\Belgium Identity Card’.
Removing this made my Weblogic server boot again.
Bonus: a comment line I’ve found in a pom.xml file of project which I am working on:
<!– voilà la solution, je suis au café… –>

Translation: Here, the solution. I am off to the coffee corner.
