Hi All,

I am running my application on WAS 5.1.2.
I dont get any errors when I start my server
but when I type in the URL of the application http://localhost:9080/dboWebApp
it gives a page not found error.

ASSUMPTION: you are trying to connect to a WAR app.

I suspect that, assuming there are no errors on your servers output log, this may be down to the contaxt name you have given your application.

Consider the following

I have an application called MONKEE, and inside it there is a WAR called, imaginatively, 'Struts Blank Application', which has a context-name of 'strut' (ok, it's a bad name, but I was learning, ok!). So, to reach this I would use as my URL

I'm amking the assumption that your context-root is not called 'dboWebApp' here!

Look at your servers output and try swapping my context-root as highlighted above with the one you deployed.

hope this helps
I agree. Here's the link:
