Getting started question

I'm sure I'll have fewer questions as times moves on, but here is another newbie question.

I've gone through the initial getting started chapter on the 'Calculator' stateless session bean J2EE project.

At the step:

<i>Deploying and Running the Calculator Application</i>

I think I successfully deploy my EAR.

The page won't load in my browser.

I've tried many flavors of localhost,, AHAMILTO1-XP and to port 50418/Calculator/Calculator.jsp.

For example:


Am I using the wrong port? Is the port 50418 not an http port? I guess I'm asking how do I determine my http port number? I also tried 50000.

I get the response during deployment:


<i>Jan 11, 2005 2:27:57 PM /userOut/deploy ( [Deploy Thread] INFO:

CalculatorEar.ear -> Successfully deployed file:/C:/DOCUME1/ahamilto/LOCALS1/Temp/temp54088CalculatorEar.ear


==> SDM host : AHAMILTO1-XP

==> SDM port : 50418

==> URL : file:/C:/DOCUME1/ahamilto/LOCALS1/Temp/temp54088CalculatorEar.ear

    1. Does your browser show the startpage of your local WAS if you try URL http://localhost:50000

    2. Where does your port 50418 come from? It seams that you have several instances on your computer, maybe you should try http://localhost:50400/Calculator/Calculator.jsp to reach your application. XXX18 is normally the sdm port through which you deploy your application to j2ee engine.

    Maybe that helps,

    50418 is the SDM port, it is used by the deployment tool.

    To check which is the http port

    - Open the J2EE Engine Administrator console and loggin (in a brand new installation user Administrator with no password)

    - Open the Dispatcher tab

    - Open the Services tab

    - Select http

    - The port number should be in the right window as "Port"

      Thanks. I had read that, but it didn't quite tell me what I want.

      Here's how I solvd my problem:

      After getting 'accustomed' to the layout of config files, I became more comfortable, and found:


      That told me everything I needed.

      Now that I knew the port, I had to use the password as entered during installation, not a blank one, and

      I was off to the races.
