Error: Cannot define schema ... <XSCEDE0006>

I am attempting to define a schema from within the Schema Editor. The error is long and complicated, and I have no clue what it means. A search on the net and the forums has not helped. This is the error I receive:

Define Tamino Schema (TSD)

Cannot define schema “PersonSchema”.

The hint is near the foot of the exception:

HTTP communication failure. ResponseCode: 404

meaning you attempting to define to Tamino via a webserver that does not know how to handle http://machine/tamino/…. This is either because you are accessing the wrong web server or the web server does not have the Tamino filter configured (and so that webserver is assuming /tamino is a file system - hence the 404 message).

Therefore you need to either configure the webserver to handle requests to tamino or use a webserver is already configured.

Just a clarification - when you say ‘Tamino filter’ are you referring to the ‘modiis.dll’ filter?

Also, the test server Tamino is installed on does not have a version of java installed; can you confirm a separate install of java is needed, and if so, which version? We’re running Tamino 4.2.1.1.

Thanks
Steven

Steven,

Quick answers:
1) yes I mean modiis.dll
2) java is only needed if you intend to run java based server extensions or the Java based Tamino tools (e.g. schema editor). Refer to Tamino documentation regarding prerequisites.
