Java Web Start - JNLP Problem

I'm trying to load an application via Java Web Start & Apache 2.0.49.  When I follow the link to my JNLP file, I get an "Unable to load resource" message.  The application is being launched within a private subnet wich restricted access to the internet through a proxy server.  The web server resides within the private subnet so I don't believe that a firewall is the issue.  

The jnlp file and errors generated are below.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<!-- FMS JNLP File  -->

<jnlp

  spec="1.0+"

  codebase="http://fmssql/WebApp/FMS"

  href="FMS.jnlp">

    <title>PROGRAM TITLE</title>

</jnlp>

It looks like the underlying error is a 404 (page not found).   Check the following attribute :

  codebase="http://fmssql/WebApp/FMS"

This should be the path up to your webapp's context.   For example, if I have a webapp named mywebapp on a server named myserver, this should be :

  codebase="http://myserver/mywebapp"
