See the problem using glassfish-4.0-b89-windows.exe & glassfish-4.0-b89-unix.sh builds, using Windows 7 and OEL6 systems, Firefox browser (latest), JDK 1.7.0_21


After completing the Installation of Glassfish, go to the URL http://localhost:8080. Once the (GlassFish Server) page is displayed, go toward the bottom righ hand side of it and select "Legal Notices" link. It points to URL http://localhost:8080/copyright.html. After selecting it, the following error is displayed

"HTTP Status 404" further down it notes "The requested resource is not available"

At this point, probably not a stopper for 4.0, but worth evaluating to see if we can fix this if there is a respin for some other reason.

So, this really looks like an issue with default index.html file which is delivered as part of bundled docs. Reassigning accordingly. Not sure how feasible it is to pick up fresh bundled docs drop, even if we do end up with another respin.

Any fix that involves adding a copyright.html page to the bundled docs relies on create-domain to copy the page to the appropriate place under docroot. Similarly, the page must also be included in any default domain that the installers create.

This issue is not a regression: GlassFish 3.1.2 (and even earlier releases) exhibit this problem. Therefore, I am changing the fix version to 4.0.1.

As a workaround to this problem, an administrator can copy the file <as-install>/docs/copyright.html to <domain-dir>/docroot/.
