Today, Anand contacted me in the evening. They were facing an issue in a clone. Whenever self service interface was launched from AppsLogin page, the following error appeared in the browser:
HTTP-404 The requested URL /oa_servlets/oracle.jsp.JspServlet was not found on this server.
After various searches on metalink, I realised that OAM link was working but the Apps login page was not working. On closer scrutiny I came to know that the login page clicked was pointing to http://justanexample.com/oa_servlets/AppsLocallogin.jsp. This is not supported by Oracle. The value of this URL is provided in the xml file in the context variable s_login_page. The value of s_login_page. The format is http://justanexample.om/oa_servlets/Appslogin. After correcting the value of s_login_page variable in xml file, running autoconfig and restarting services the error disappeared. It is possible that the templates created during pre-clone stage had errors because of which the value was incorrect in the clone.
