Hi,

i am new to weblogic server.
i want my web clients to direct download file in a weblogic server. like sun app server docroot.
Users should be able to type "http://url.com/test.txt" to download the files. if any one knows how to do this, please help me.

thanks,
sujith.

You can use virtual directory mapping to accomplish this. (weblogic.xml tag)

thanks for the reply.

in order to your reply, i tried editing weblogic.xml file. but it didn't work.

suppose i have a file in "d:\test\t.pdf".
i used the below code fragment to achieve you proposed.but i was failed.

<virtual-directory-mapping>
<local-path>D:/</local-path>
<url-pattern>/test/*</url-pattern>
<url-pattern>*.pdf</url-pattern>
</virtual-directory-mapping>


please, help me with more details.

thanks again

How is the url you're using to get the file?

Long time since I've done this.. but as far as I remember....

You'll problably need to add the pattern you've mapped with url-pattern tag to your url, like: http://localhost/test/yourFile.pdf

When pointing in weblogic.xml file try to pass complete path from files like:



Let me know if worked, ok???

The one used inside your application. If you don't have one you should create it inside WEB-INF/weblogic.xml same directory as web.xml

Hi,

I have another issue in this area. I am able to download the files, but the file size is zero bytes everytime i download. It is happening for any file extension. Tried .docx,.txt and .zip file.

Can some one please let me know about any additional configuration to resolve this.

contentType = "image/jpeg";

Google for more ............
