Can you suggest how to do this in WSAD test server?

I would like to redirect users from http:// to https:// if they try to access the site without including the "s".

I included this in web.xml




I read that I have to update httpd.conf file but I could not find that file in WSAD test server.

Your help is really appreciated

http.conf file is for web server (Apache) not for websphere. In websphere you need to do this configuration in application server. There are different port numbers for http and https.(9080, 9090) but check documentation to be sure.
