    Websocket connetion fails (404) when deployed to server, fine on localhost

    Chris Ritchie Newbie

      I created and tested a Java EE 7 application that uses WebSockets on my local PC. All works fine when I deploy to WildFly 8 on my local machine, and access the application using localhost.

       

      When I deploy the same application on a cloud server, (Ubuntu 14.04) with exactly the same WildFly configuration, I get the following message when the application tries to connect:

       

          "NetworkError: 404 Not Found - http://178.11.11.11:8080/pss/ws/notification"

          Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at ws://178.11.11.11:8080/pss/ws/notification.

       

      I can access the application, it is just the websocket connection that fails.

       

      pss is my context root, and the websocket end point is annotated with @ServerEndpoint("/ws/notification"), so the URL is correct and works 100% on my local machine using localhost.

       

      When I deploy the application I can see that the websocket endpoint has been picked up by WildFly, so this is not the issue

      The request headers are correct:

      I am accessing the application using the following URL (IP modified), and the ports match:

       

          http://178.11.11.11:8080/pss/

       

      If I run netstat -an | grep 'LISTEN' on my cloud server I get the following, which shows that 0.0.0.0:8080 is bound and listening:

      Apache is not installed so this is a direct connection to Wildfly server.

       

      After several days I am pretty stumped as to why this is failing.

       

      Has any body experienced this before and have a solution, or do you have a way to toubleshoot this further.

       

      Thanks
