Oracle Legal Whitehill One - Version: 5.7.1 to 5.7.5
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Deployed webservices appear in the Repository, but are not available from the wsgateway webpage and hence cannot be used with InfoPath.  When visiting the http://<servername>:<port>/wsgateway webpage and clicking on the List link, the newly deployed webservices are not shown in the list.

The <install path>\engine\logs\bpi-engine.log reports the following error:
