Static Image References Not Displayed, REST calls result in 404 Not Found

(Doc ID 2124630.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 22, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle REST Data Services - Version 3.0.3 to 3.0.3 [Release APEX 3.0]
Oracle REST Data Services - Version 3.0.8 to 3.0.8 [Release 3.0.6]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

APEX 5.0.X is installed and ORDS 3.0.3 is configured as its listener.  The issue will occur regardless of web server deployment target:  Weblogic, Glassfish, or Apache Tomcat.  The issue will also occur with Standalone Mode.

When the pages containing static image references using the standard substitution strings #APP_IMAGES# and #WORKSPACE_IMAGES# are accessed with ORDS 3.0.3 as the listener, broken image link placeholders are displayed. On inspection the references show as:

schema/r/110/files/static/v10/file.jpg

...or a similar pattern.

HTTP Header Tracing shows the files are not retrieved, with "404 Not Found" errors.

RESTful Services are also not callable and result in "404 Not Found" errors.

Changes

 New configuration of ORDS 3.0.3.
