x-application examples and xappgenerator doesn't run

Dear Sears Please help, after installation X-Application 4.1.1 (adjusting xapplication.conf and succsessfull run setup.cmd) I cannot run nor examples nor generator under a browser.

platform: W2K
Tamino: 4.1.4
TomCat: 5.5.12
X-Application 4.1.1
JDK 1.5.0

The request from browser http://localhost:8080/xapp
returns the answer:

HTTP Status 404 - /xapp
The requested resource (/xapp) is not available.
Apache Tomcat/5.5.12

and the request : http://localhost:8080/xapp/generator dos not work the same.

After setup.cmd finishing I got a new *.xml files in Tomcat’s /webapps but the dir /xapp was not created.

The x-application dir is : c:/xapplication_411

xapplication.conf file:

xapp.xml from Tomcat’s /webapps :


xappgenerator.xml :

I hope somebody can be able to suggest me about right adjusting the xapplications.

Kind regards
Serge Goncharov.

Hello Serge
I am not sure why this happens but you can bypass it as follows. For each context you need to add (like “/xapp”), use the Tomcat Manager to Deploy the context manually. At the bottom of the list of deployed applications in the Manager there is a “Deploy” section.
Type the context path ("/xapp") and
type the URL to the relevant XML config file (for example, “C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\webapps\xapp.xml”). Leave the “WAR” box empty and click “Deploy”. The application should appear in the list and you should see a confirmation message like “OK - Deployed application at context path /xapp” at the top of the Manager window. You need to repeat this for each context. Maybe there is a smarter way but I don’t know it - anyone?

Hello Bill,

thank you a lot, with your aid I have got the working x-applications now and I am starting to learn them!

Kind regards Serge Goncharov
