Problem Running J2EE Application in NWDS12

Former Member

I am running Netweaver Developer Studio Version.

SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio

Version: 2.0.12

Build id: 200505090134

I have developeed a new J2EE Enterprise Application. I have successfully built the application.

When I run the application via the

Run --> Run --> J2EE Application path, and then select a JSP, I receive the following error.

"Could not find executable for file extension = htm"

This prevents the application from running. I have checked that a file association exists against .htm, which is Default HTML Editor.

Can anyone advise the cause of this problem

Hi Ciaran,

At the movement NWDS runs majority on IE.But there some work around to use it in Firfox.Please refer service market place for those details.

I have now found the cause of this problem.

My Default browser is Firefox. I have temporarily changed my default browser to Internet Explorer. I am then able to successfully Run the application.

Does anyone know whether it is possible to get NWDS to launch J2EE applications whilst the default browser is Firefox?

Or does NWDS only work with IE?
