Symptoms

On : 10.1.3.x version, OC4J Standalone

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Oc4J fails to start correctly.
The container shows the process is started successful. No errors reported in logs.

However, netstat shows the port 9704 is not in use,even though, ps command reports  process is running.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
OC4J should start and be available to access OC4J Welcome page on "/" and /xmlpserver.

Instead IE  reports "Cannot Display The Webpage"


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:


1. Start OC4J :  % java -jar oc4j.jar <options>

2. Call URLs from IE browser:

      http://hostname:9704/

      http://hostname:9704/xmlpserver
