[SOLVED] Checkstyle, Unable to parse configuration stream


I am new to coding but was asked to install apache ofbiz software. I’ve gotten pretty far by doing my own research however, I’ve run into an error that I can’t find an answer for online. this is the checkstyle.xml file that is having issues when i try to run the gradle build:

heres the error that comes up

Caused by:
com.puppycrawl.tools.checkstyle.api.CheckstyleException: unable to parse configuration stream – XML document structures must start and end within the same entity.:134:10

Caused by:
org.xml.sax.SAXParseException; systemId: file:/C:/apache-ofbiz-18.12.05/config/checkstyle/checkstyle.xml; lineNumber: 134; columnNumber: 10; XML document structures must start and end within the same entity.

So I’m not sure what I should be putting or changing since its the last line. I’ve tried moving it around adding another </module> portion and adding spaces. If anyone could help that would be greatly appreciated.


You are missing a closing </module> tag. Probably on the

<module name="TreeWalker">

So add this closing element </module> at the end/the right place and your XML should be fine.
