Last updated on NOVEMBER 19, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.5.0 to 11.1.1.6.0 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Symptom:

The URL in the browser address bar does not change to reflect the welcome page when a webapp is accessed using just the context-path.

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR 
---------------
After upgrading custom webcenter application from 11.1.1.2 to 11.1.1.5, the application URL (JDeveloper Integrated WLS)

http://127.0.0.1:7101/DealerPortalApp

redirects user to the URL below URL

http://127.0.0.1:7101/DealerPortalApp/?_afrLoop=26209805611198&_afrWindowMode=0&_afrWindowId=tr5llbu09_24#%40%3F_afrWindowId%3Dtr5llbu09_24%26_afrLoop%3D26209805611198%26_afrWindowMode%3D0%26_adf.ctrl-state%3Dtr5llbu09_36

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR (What was seen in 11.1.1.2)
-----------------------

http://127.0.0.1:7101/DealerPortalApp/faces/home.jspx?_afrLoop=2606450682249000&_afrWindowMode=0&_adf.ctrl-state=yc2u5ojln_23

The /faces/home.jspx part is missing in the URL.

Because of this images are not showing up since they use relative URLs. If you click on the logo for going to the home page, the URL gets populated correctly and the images show up.

Changes

Upgrade from 11.1.1.2 to 11.1.1.5
