  2. Follow steps for "Installing a server role as a JSP Web application—universal procedure"
  3. "Installing the Content Delivery Web service as a JSP Web application"
  4. "Adding UGC to the Content Deployer server role"
  5. "Setting up Content Delivery Web services for UGC" After this I try the link and it shows 404 error. Please tell which file to upload to further debug this issue

By default the OData Web Service will be deployed "under" a URL, typically "ws". So you should try loading http://server:port/ws/odata.svc (check your web.xml to be sure).

Also, I would recommend deploying OData (and any of the other server types) from the pre-built webapps that are shipped with Tridion Content Delivery instead of manually assembling the jars - this will cause less trouble with missing files.

  • Do you mean I should use the cd_webservice.war file given in \Content Delivery\roles\webservice\java\ folder

  • Yes, that's what I mean. Or you could just rename that to .zip, and copy the jars from there instead of "manually assembling" them

  • Hi I added the jars from the war file and added only the relevant conf files. When I try the url http//host:port/odata.svc, an IE blocker message comes. "Content from this website listing is being blocked by IE enhanced security configuration. And after that it says, IE cannot display this feed. Even if i try the url /ws/odata.svc, it gives the same error.
