    JBoss 6 deployment issue -- simple example

    blaakso5577 Newbie

      Hello all:

         Hope I get this first post correct!


      Here is the issue...

         I have a Spring MVC example that deploys and works fine when deployed as a WAR to Tomcat 7.

      However, when I deploy the WAR to JBoss 6, I cannot get the welcome JSP to display. I always get a 404 page.

      I also tried to deploy it as an EAR, same result.

      It seems strange to me considering that JBoss uses a Tomcat container, correct?

      This also happens on JBoss 5.0.1, although I did see some deployment exceptions on 5.0.1.


      There must be a configuration I missed.

      This is a first time unzip of the JBoss 6.0 Final. All configurations are default.


      I am deploying and starting both Tomcat and JBoss from Eclipse Helios, and I am using JBoss Tools.

      No spaces in the eclipse, eclipse workspace path or the JBoss home path.

      Using a windows XP box.

      Spring 2.5.6

      Java 6 update 24


      The context is started with the line:

      12:45:32,096 INFO  [org.jboss.web.tomcat.service.deployers.TomcatDeployment] deploy, ctxPath=/Court-Annotation


      Deployment seems OK:

      12:45:32,299 DEBUG [org.jboss.deployers.plugins.deployers.DeployersImpl] Fully Deployed vfs:///C:/jboss-6.0.0.Final/server/default/deploy/Court-Annotation.war


      The project is deployed to the server/default/deploy directory as an exploded WAR.

      I can see all the pages and classes in the deployed WAR.


      There are no errors in the logs other than: (when I try to access the page)

      12:47:23,503 WARN  [org.springframework.web.servlet.PageNotFound] No mapping found for HTTP request with URI [/Court-Annotation/welcome.htm] in DispatcherServlet with name 'court'


      This part of the log seems strange to me. It loads the context, but then this line at the end.

      Any ideas? Strange that this project works OK on Tomcat 7.0.

      I attached the zipped eclipse project and a screen shot of the build props


      Thank you for the help.
