    JBoss/Tomcat HTTP 500

    Alan Newbie

      Hi

      I downloaded the JBoss/Tomcat bundle yesterday, and haven't been able to get Tomcat to process requests when I try to start the servers with 'run_with_catalina' (I Get 'HTTP Status 500 - No Context configured to process this request'). When I just run Catalina with 'catalina' everything runs AOK, but of course without JBoss. Any ideas? I'm trying to get this up and running for a corporate project, and if I can't get this going they're going to go ahead with Weblogic.

      Thanks in advance!
      Al

            I haven't been able to get the root "/" context working yet, but the additional .war applications that I deployed in jBoss worked. It just seems that something may be wrong with the root context. I'm not sure if this applies to your situation, but maybe it will.

              On Tomcat, the root context is called ROOT.war and if you deploy it it sets itself up as the root context... this doesn't seem to work in jboss though...

                well my .jar's in JBOSS run fine from a java Application, but I can't get any servlets up in Tomcat when I do a run_with_catalina.

                I've been trying to run the two separately and still can't get anywhere (can't get past a NamingException)

                I have no idea why Tomcat will only respond with HTTP500's after run_with_catalina.

                  What you can do is go to sourceforge and get version 2.4.3. dont know why 2.4.4 bundle doesnt work but the 2.4.3 bundle works just fine. try it out.

                    Heh, it's not a trouble...
                    cd $CATALINA_HOME/webapp/ROOT
                    jar cvf ROOT.war *
                    mv ROOT.war $JBOSS_DIST/deploy/.war

                    cd $CATALINA_HOME/webapp/examples
                    jar cvf examples.war *
                    mv examples.war $JBOSS_DIST/deploy/

                    etc...

                    good luck :)

                      Hi - finally figured out how to get the JBoss 2.4.4 + Tomcat 4.0.1 working; in addition to creating the ROOT.war and examples.war files above and putting them in the $JBOSS_HOME/deploy directory, you also need to copy the tools.jar file from your $JAVA_HOME/lib directory into the $JBOSS_HOME/lib/ext directory so JBoss/Catalina will be able to compile JSP's.

                      Also, you have to access these web applications in their URL context's: ie:

                      http:///ROOT
                      http:///examples

                      and then (from what I've seen) everything seems to be working okay.

                      I haven't figured out yet how to specify a default web-app so if you just go to http:// a web-app will automatically load up.

                      Hope this helps whoever hasn't figured this out yet.

                      Cheers,
                      Rich

                        mv ROOT.war $JBOSS_DIST/deploy/.war
                        (rename "ROOT.war" to ".war" and move it to your deploy dir).

                            On windows, I can't change ROOT.war to .war. There was not problem when I deployed ROOT.war. But when I deployed examples.war, I got the following messages:

                            [ERROR,EmbeddedCatalinaServiceSX] Failed to setup web application ENC

                            But the examples are working well. What is this error message about?

                              To change the ROOT.war to .war in windows you have to use the command prompt:

                              c:>rename ROOT.war .war

                              :)

                                This was a life saver! Worked great.
