Setup of Xapplication 411 fails

I am trying to setup Xapplication 4.1.1 but it fails while trying to
define the property schema.
I have a 4.1.1 version tamino database running and its name is xapp4
The log file is attached.

X-Application Version: 4.1.1
Tamino Version : 4.1.1
Platform : Win2k
WebContainer : Tamocat 4.1.1
JDK Version : 1.3.1
log.xml (38.1 KB)


very strange effect. Could you give me more details about the database xapp4.

- Is it a database of version 4?

- Is it originally created as version 4 database or did you upgrade a database of version 3 via
(a) setversion and (optional)
(b) namespace cleaning?

- Did you use an existing collection ‘xapplication’?

The error code sent back by Tamino is INOXME8554 which means that the request for defining the schema was wrong.

To get more details about the error I would please you to install a sniffer to protocol the requests of the installation.

The steps are:

(1) change you xapplication.conf:

</pre><BR><BR>instead of<BR><BR><pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">

(2) start the sniffer with

perl -body=all -port 3500 -remote localhost:80 -l installrequests.txt

see also Protocolling the HTTP transfer between Tamino and X-Application if you have not yet downloaded the HTTP sniffer or want to have more details about HTTP sniffer.

(3) start the setup process for X-Application 4.1.1 again.

(4) post the resulting log file ‘installrequests.txt’ to the community for we can analyze the request causing the problem.

Many thanks.


Hello Christian,
my database is version 4.1.1
it is a newly created database.
It has no new collections in it neither any collection named as xapplication.
The log files are in the attached zip file.
Thanks Server

Ps : My Tomcat listens port 8081 not 8080 (Probably should has no effect to this problem) (5.79 KB)


the Tomcat is not involved when installing X-Application. So, it does not matter if it is running on port 8080 or 8081.

I compared your request with my request protocol. A difference I could see is your requests contain a User-Agent

User-Agent: Java1.3.0

while on my machine where I am using JSDK 1.3.1_07 the user agent is

User-Agent: Java1.3.1_07

I’m not sure if this causes the problem. I asked my colleagues developing the Tamino API for Java. They recommend JDK 1.3.1_04.

Could you install a newer version of the JDK?

If yes. Enter

set java_home=...

within the console window to set the new JDK version (… = install directory of JSDK or runtime environment) before you invoke the X-Application ‘setup’ command.

Many thanks.


Hi Christian I changed my JAVA_HOME to jdk3.1.1 and it worked successfully
