While creating a sample plug in for connected system if you are following the instructions and using the code snippet provided in the - reference docs, may get below errors while deploying the plugin.
Failed to retrieve input stream from plugin descriptor file: appian-plugin.xml
and below some lines in the log it says
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The validated string is empty
There is a problem with the plugin.xml example snippet in the reference page. instead of appian-plugin it mentions appian-plug-in and instead of plugin-info it mentions plug-in-info.

Thanks Chen, that was the first thing I did. The post is just to help someone in the interim.Have also requested in the feedback if the error message can be a bit elaborative/helpful - as unrecognised token, rather than just mentioning what I quoted above from the logs.
