J2EE Application Needs a "/" (Slash) at the end of a URL from a Client (Doc ID 341331.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Containers for J2EE - Version: 10.1.2.0.0 to 10.1.2.3.0
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

J2EE web application having "welcome-files" defined, cannot be accessed if a final "/" (slash) is not added to the URL.

Verified the issue by the trace file from ieHTTPHeaders which revealed that accessing to http://ip:port/app
a) In this case, you are accessing the application using the IP address.
b) When accessing it without the final "/" , you are being redirected to http://servername:port/app/
c) The URL http://servername:port/app/ is not responding.

When the access is done to http://ip:port/app/ , the application is correctly reached.
