      Hii Everyone,
      When i am trying to open BI Publisher, Its not even getting opened and i am getting the error which i mentioned below., Could anyone please let me know what it is and how to resolve it...,..,. plsssss



      Error 404--Not Found
      From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:
      Not Found

      The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent.

      If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 403 (Forbidden) can be used instead. The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address.

          It sounds like the BI Publisher application isn't installed or running correctly.

          What version of OBIEE are you using?
          Have you ever connected to BI Publisher successfully before?

              What version of OBIEE are you using? Which webserver are you using?

              An example of the config file from a 10G install I did is:

              <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
              <xmlpConfig xmlns="http://xmlns.oracle.com/oxp/xmlp">
              <resource>
              <file path="/u01/app/oracle/product/OracleBI/xmlp/XMLP"/>
              </resource>
              </xmlpConfig>

              Where the path to BI Publisher is /u01/app/oracle/product/OracleBI/xmlp/XMLP.
