Verifying the Application Server Installation

Obtaining the Connector’s Rootservices

After the Connector’s WAR file has been deployed into the chosen application server as described in the installation procedures, successfully obtaining the Connector’s rootservices file is an early verification task:

  1. Open a browser
  2. Type the URL https://oslc-windchill.acme.com:port/<context-path>/rootservices in the browser
  3. Click Enter to send the HTTP GET to the application server
  4. The browser should offer to download a rootservices file.

The task is successfully completed if the file can be downloaded or is displayed directly as XML RDF content in browser.
If the operation fails (e.g. with a HTTP Status 404 error), review carefully the application server installation steps.
