Weird never see that before. Any error in the server.log or in the file system? Could you check the date of the class files corresponding to the jsp? Are they newer than they should be (like after the restart)?
Which version are using?
I have checked the server.log, there is no error or exception.
The class files version do not change, they are the same as when the application was built.
Jboss version 5.1.0 GA.
For webserver Apache webserver version 2.2.x which communicates with JBOSS web through mod_jk.
Any idea how to debug the issue?
do you know if the issue was coming for AS5 or from httpd (the two 404 are different)?
The precompiled jsp's are present in AS5.
I do not know how to find out if htt 404 is coming from httpd or AS5.
Is there a way to find it out?
Looking in the access_log is the 404 from AS5 is usually bigger that the httpd one:
127.0.0.1 - - [10/Jun/2013:09:00:55 +0200] "GET /toto.toto HTTP/1.1" 404 975
and (for httpd).
127.0.0.1 - - [10/Jun/2013:08:58:37 +0200] "GET /toto.toto HTTP/1.1" 404 207
Unfortunately, I do not have the access logs with me when the issue was reproduced.
This issue is intermittent and gets resolved after the application and the web server is restarted multiple times.
Anything else I need to check?
may be the httpd.conf files could give a hint of what could have happended but without logs there are very few changes to find what went wrong :-(
