Problem to Running XMLGreeting

I tried to running the XMLGreeting Example but I get an Exception . I change the Database_uri
to Database_Uri = “http://jet:3207/tamino/myDB”;
this is the Server in where Tamino is Running.
when I enter the “http://jet:3207/tamino/myDB?_diagnose=ping” on the Browser I get a blank Page.
it is the same with “http://jet:3207/tamino/myDB?_diagnose=version” .

I get the following exception when I’am trying to run XMLGreeting :

*******************Exception **********

End Exception

could somebody tell me what I’am doing wrong ?
Thanks and Best Regards

My initial suspicion is the URL. Typically using HTTP access to Tamino you generally do NOT specify a port.

Try the following in a browser:


I enter http://jet/tamino/myDB?diagnose=ping without port
but I wait, wait ,wait… the browser
still search,
what wrong ?
Best Regards

Are you able to ascertain whether Tamino has been correctly entered into the configuration of the web server? In the Tamino 4 documentation this is discussed under:

Tamino XML Server Documentation →
Installing Tamino on Windows →
Configuring Tamino

And another note: As long as you can’t see anything in the browser with the _diagnose=ping command, you equally will not be able to access Tamino with the Java program.
It is ok to specify a port number in the URL, but maybe the port number is wrong?

Hi Annick,
are you sure you issued the correct command? It has to be _diagnose=ping after the question mark, NOT diagnose=ping is your e-mail mentioned.
