Symptoms

 

 

http://host:port/myappl/TestApache.jsp

was submitted and the response got was "Not Found".

The TestApache.jsp resided (as expected) in applications/myappl/myapplProject.

 

Researching the issue it was found that the file

j2ee/myoc4j/application-deployments/myappl/myoc4j_default_island_1/application.log showed the following error:

05/09/16 15:17:10 myappl: JspServlet: unable to dispatch to requested page: Exception:java.io.FileNotFoundException:

/data/1012j2/j2ee/myoc4j/application-deployments/myappl/myapplProject/TestApache.jsp (No such file or directory).

The error was correct from the point of view the file was not there, but it was incorrect because the path used to locate the file was wrong.

 

The error was then caused by oc4j trying to locate the file in directory "application-deployments" when it was located in "applications".
