am following this tuto to create a map on web with geoserver, GeoEXT, EXTJs, and openlayers here's the linki downloaded ext 4.2.0, openlayers 2.12 and GeoEXT 1.1, when i try to show the map : //geo.ancfcc/geoserver/www/search/map.html , all i get is a blank page. i don't know what's the error (i don't know where to find error log) here's my map.html:

   <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN">
        A map
<script src="../ext/ext-all-debug.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
     Ext.onReady(function() {
      var map = new OpenLayers.Map();
      var layer = new OpenLayers.Layer.WMS(
        "Blue Marble",
        {layers: "ancfcc:titres_salemed_valid"}

      new GeoExt.MapPanel({
          renderTo: 'gxmap',
          height: 400,
          width: 600,
          map: map,

That's not all your HTML I assume as there is no <body>. Could you include the body HTML as well? Also, seeing as you just get a blank map that normally points at a JavaScript error. You should load it up in Firefox and use the Firebug extension (Or Safari/Chrome - Developer Toos) to look at any errors returned in the console. – Rob Quincey May 8 '13 at 10:58
sii i have it, sorry just forgot to copy well : </head> <body> <div id='gxmap'></div> </body> </html> ok thanks for the advice – Geographic May 8 '13 at 11:31
Now it's works i can see the panel but i dont get the map inside. i assume it's a WMS issue, because when im trying to load this page : geo.ancfcc/geoserver/wms am getting this error: in serviceException report: <ServiceException code="MissingParameterValue" locator="request"> Could not determine geoserver request from http request org.geoserver.platform.AdvancedDispatchFilter$AdvancedDispatchHttpRequest@90c029 </ServiceException> – Geographic May 8 '13 at 14:43

It can't work because you have :

  • Ext 4.2.0
  • Openlayers 2.12
  • GeoExt 1.1

and if you carefully read you have

Download the latest Ext 3.x from the ExtJS website

Furthermore, read to confirm
