Hi Bertrand, I downloaded and deployed sling launchpad 6 in apache tomcat 6.0.32 (OS: windows xp). My sling URL is http://localhost:8080/sling-launchpad-6/
I am able to successfully create content with the curl command:
curl -u admin:admin -F"sling:resourceType=foo/bar" -F"title=Foo Bar" http://localhost:8080/sling-launchpad-6/content/foonode
and view it via http://localhost:8080/sling-launchpad-6/content/foonode.json or foonode.html
However when I navigate to explorer URL http://localhost:8080/sling-launchpad-6/.explorer.html as per the sling documentation, while I get the basic interface, I also get a "HTTP Status 404 - /.explorer.item.html" error.
I am however able to manually navigate to http://localhost:8080/sling-launchpad-6/.explorer.item.html it displays the a set of resource links.
These are the links displayed, although clicking on them does not do anything. They are HREFed to "#"
Also, the URL http://localhost:8080/sling-launchpad-6/content/.explorer.item.html displays foonode which was the content I create via the curl command.
And yet, I am not able to navigate to this using the explorer.
Either I have missed something in the configuration or setup or I am not using the explorer correctly, but I cant figure out what! Please help.
