Creating an HTTP Alias in WAS

This blog talks about how to create an http alias pointing to a path in the actual file structure of the Web Aplication Server.


For eg: I have created an alias “test\rja” and mapped it to the path “E:\usr\sap\J2E\JC00\j2ee\cluster\server0\temp\rja”.

To show this works, copy an HTML file and put in this folder as shown below.


Access this HTML page using the HTTP alias as part of the URL.

      Great overview on HowTo an alias.

      I tried to do it with an UNC-name, and didn't manage to make it work. Do you have any ideas about this?

      Im working in migrating my J2EE aplication which is working on sun one server to SAP Server. I find problem in refering images & css in my jsp pages.

      This article helps me a lot. Thanks a lot.
      But i think the name is case sensitive. even the subfolder names & filename inside the specified location.
      for example, i ve given '/' as the alias name for the folder 'd:/docroot'. Inside the i ve 'images' & 'css' folder. In my application, they ve referred it as '/images' or '/IMAGES' & '/CSS' or '/css'. This leads to problem. i cant change all the code to unique reference. Thats very tedious job.

      Is there any possible to done via any settings.
      Help me out in this.
