Hi, Has anyone ever encountered this before? When deploying an enterprise application in exploded format with a nested web application also in exploded format- WebLogic does not recognize the welcome-file-list entries in the web app's web.xml file. When you direct your browser to the context-root for the web app (as specified in the application.xml file) you get a 403 Forbidden error. The funny thing is when you package everything up into an EAR and then redeploy- it works no problem. I'd be interested to know if this is a configuration issue or just a bug. I'm running WebLogic 6.1 SP2. Thanks in advance. Cheers, Eric
After 4 years, I have the similar problem but... with Weblogic 8.1, weblogic plugin.
I use eclipse to create the Web-project, (no Enterprise project), then I use Weblogic plugin to deploy my web-proj in "exploded" mode. Everything is allright except the web context root: is /MyWebProj\WebContent instead of /MyWebProj. So Error 404--Not Found is diplayed in web browser.
And I cannot modify the web context root in console, and I dont know how to modify it in eclipse.
Please help me,
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
