Hi actually i have oracle installed on my computer which has oracle http server and i also have apache tomcat server in my computer.But when i am trying to connect to apache tomcat server it shows

[ The server localhost at XDB requires a username and password error.Warning: This server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a secure connection)].

Before when i was not installed oracle i can easily connect to tomcat sever.Can any one tell me why this option is showing.?
thanks in advance

You need to change the Tomcat default port '8080' or the Oracle XDB default port '8080'

You can here see how to change the Oracle default ports (XDB and FTP): XML DB Port Assignments

Oracle apps run as a windows services, you can try to disable the services and should work.

solving xdb problem

1).goto C:\apache tomcat 8.0.5\conf
2)you will find server.xml Right click on it and open with text editor

3) after scrolling page you will find this lines [line no 68]

<Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
redirectPort="8443" />

4) rename port name from 8080 to 8081 and in browser type http://localhost:8081/

<Connector port="8081" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
redirectPort="8443" />
I agree. Here's the link:
