I am getting the 404 error ---
I installed the Weblogic 5.X app server and I am trying to test using a servlet example.
I did the following steps -
1. Installed the WEBLOGIC server.
2. In the file I uncommented these two lines
weblogic.httpd.register.hello=\ examples.servlets.HelloWorldServlet
3. started the WLServer.
4.On the browser if I typed - http://localhost:7001/Hello
I am getting 404 error.
I checked the files"examples.servlets.HelloWorldServlet" and they are there.
5. Do I need to change the LAN settings.
6. I am using Windows 98.
Any help is very much appreciated.

weblogic.httpd.register.hello=\ examples.servlets.HelloWorldServlet
Call the servlet by http://localhost:7001/hello

Don't use the backslash in filepaths. Outside the Windows world, it's an escape character that give you problems. ESPECIALLY if you code something like:\foo\bar\
because the trailing backslash will be interpreted as a line-continuation request. Use forward slashes. Even though you're running WebLogic under Windows, WebLogic is using Java's filename parsing rules. Look at some of the filepaths that the WebLogic setup program created in your file for examples.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
