Hello everyone,

with no experience on former versions of RAP, OSGi, Equinox, RCP etc., I tried to get a RAP 2.0 application running. After a short while, I could start my "Hello World" application on Eclipse's Jetty server. My next goal was to get it running on an Apache Tomcat 7 server, which I've been trying for half a week now and I'm getting more frustrated every day.

From the RAP Tools 2.0, I used the org.eclipse.rap.demo project as seen in RAP developer guide. As far as I could see, this already includes the Equinox servlet bridge required to run the RAP application, so I created the .warproduct file, strictly following the tutorial, and deployed the rapdemo.war on my Tomcat. I can get the following status using the OSGi ss command:

osgi> ss
"Framework is launched."

How do I run the application? Am I maybe just missing the right URL? I tried localhost:8080/rapdemo/rap, but I always only get 404 errors. Any help desperately appreciated!

Best regards

I could already solve the problem and it really was the URL. The correct address was: localhost:8080/rapdemo/app
It really took me some days to find this though in the change log from RAP 1.5 to 2.0. Not the first place I was looking as a beginner...

Best regards

The RAP Developer Guide seems like a nice place.
