I installed Alfresco Labs 3 with the default Derby database. It ran fine. But when I configured the database (Oracle) it ran into trouble.

Below is the log file:

14:56:54,263 INFO  [org.alfresco.web.site.FrameworkHelper] Successfully Initialized Web Framework

It appears to have created tables (75) in the database fine.
The Tomcat window shows the "server starts in …." message
Alfresco web client page does not open and it gives the HTTP status 404 error message

I have seen a few posts with similar problem description. But none had a clear solution that worked for me. They talked about deleting alf_data, dropping and recreating the database, permissions etc. None of these work.

If anyone has been through this situation, reply with your experiences/work around/solution/fixes… THANKS in advance.
