Last updated on OCTOBER 22, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Containers for J2EE - Version to [Release AS10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This problem can occur on any platform.


When using the Basic installation of OAS, you cannot access the application deployed in the newly created second OC4J instance.

The application deployed in the default 'home' OC4J works fine.

What Works

The application deployment to the second OC4J instance is successful without any errors.

The deployed application is shown in the Enterprise Manager.


When you try to access the application deployed in the second OC4J instance using an URL in the following format:

http://<host>:<port>/<context root>/


<port> is the HTTP server port of the default 'home' OC4J instance.

<context root> is the context root of the application deployed in the second OC4J container.

You see the HTTP 404 - File not found error


This occurs in OAS basic install.
