    JBoss/Catalina HTTP500

    Alan Newbie

      I downloaded and unzipped Jboss/Catalina, and started them with 'run_with_catalina.bat' under Windows2000. When I point my webbrowser at port 8080 of my machine, I get the browser error: HTTP Status 500 - No Context configured to process this request.

      And get this from JBoss:

      [INFO,Default] JBoss-2.4.4 Started in 0m:4s.96
      [INFO,EmbeddedCatalinaServiceSX] StandardHost[localhost]: MAPPING configuration
      error for request URI

      I don't know what could be causing Catalina to be failing like this, especially when no modifications have been changed, and in the Jboss startup messages it shows that Tomcat services have started fine on 8080 (I am guessing this is the default port).

      IIS is not running, nor are any other servers on port 80.

      I have looked through every configuration file with the best of my ability, but am unable to find a solution to this.

      If you have any ideas: a million thanks in advance,
      Alan
