    Cannot connect to RESTful DLF Services after SP Install

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    After installation of SP, DLF RESTful web services fail with the error "HTTP Status 404 - Servlet Jersey Web Application is not available"

    For example:

    This is strange, because the Aleph server still has a JBoss Server, not a tomcat server. The JBoss server is running.

    We do not see any information on implementation of Tomcat Jersey RESTful web services.

    JBoss had not been upgraded. Here's how I checked:

    >> cd /exlibris/aleph/a20_1/ng/aleph/home/system/thirdparty/openserver/lib

    >> cp jboss-system.jar /tmp

    >> cd /tmp
    >> unzip jboss-system.jar
