I am using Applet / Servlet HTTP communication. All very standard stuff. My webapp deployed and ran fine under JBOSS 2.4.6 (although the jboss admin who got it working initially has long since gone and I can't remember what he did to make it work!) and deploys and starts up fine under JBOSS 3.2.3 but when I try to actually use the webapp, the trouble starts.
The Applet tries to make a call to the Servlet and gets the below shown FileNotFoundException that looks as follows:
at ... (Where the StackTrace eventually shows the root cause to be the function I'm using to call the Servlet via HTTP with a HTTP 'GET'.
It seems the JBOSS sets up the /my_app_context context OK and serves up JSPs, my client application JAR file and static / HTML content fine but cannot get at the server-side part of the webapp (i.e. Servlets and associated helper / utility classes).
I want the app. to run unsecured i.e. no authentication necessary. No security is declared in the web.xml.
Some system info that may help with the diagnosis is:
I'm running the following:
1. JBOSS 3.2.3 / Tomcat 4.1.x bundle
2. JDK 1.4.1-b21
3. Win2k Professional
I have a jboss-web.xml deployed with the app. which simply reads:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <jboss-web> <context-root>/my_app_context</context-root> </jboss-web>
