E-WL: WebLogic PIA Fails to Start Properly after Configuring Coherence*Web: PIA_weblogic.log Shows Error "BEA-149205: Failed to initialize the application 'peoplesoft' due to error weblogic.application.ModuleException: Failed to load webapp: '/'"

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.52 and later
Oracle Coherence - Version to [Release AS10g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After configuring Coherence*Web on a multi-server WebLogic domain, the PIA managed server does not start properly. This error is in PIA_weblogic.log


Even though the above error is issued, the WebLogic PIA still starts and successfully binds to the http/https ports.  However, if you try to access the PeopleSoft application, you will get message "Error 404--Not Found"

The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
  1. Configure Coherence*Web on the multi-server WebLogic domain
  2. Start PIA (ie "startManagedWebLogic PIA") and it logs above message
  3. Attempt to log into PIA and it fails with message "Error 404--Not Found"
