Cannot access JNLP, 403 Forbidden Error

Hello All,


I have deployed an application 'ThinApp' in Weblogic 8.1 SP5. I created a separate domain(port 7001) in WL where I deployed my application. My application uses the JNLP/WebStart to get updates whenever any new modifications are made to my application 'ThinApp'.

I have created a separate domain(port 7003) in Weblogic for JNLP.
I have deployed the web-app 'JNLPAPP' which contains the signed jars and workspace.xml in my JNLP domain. The workspace.xml present under my WEB-INF

<<<<<Dir structure of my JNLPAPP>>>>>
|-index.html> it has a link which launches the JWS.
|-lib>signed jar's & a workspace.xml which decribes the entry point for my JNLP to the application 'ThinApp'.

My JNLPAPP web-app was successfully deployed. When I am trying to access my JNLP from IE with the link http://localhost:7003/JNLPAPP it is throwing a HTTP Error 403 Forbidden.

Any idea why? If you need any more information please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Best Wishes,
