Hi,
I am using Websphere 3.5 for a web application.
In my application I generate PDF files dynamically on the application server and display them to the user. In order to display these PDF files to the user I enable the File Serving Servlet.
The problem is that once I enable the File Serving Servlet I need to place all my static content(gif, html, css) on the application server. I am unable to be "picky" about where I put my static content. I believe this is causing some performance degradation.
Any help is appreciated.

Why not place the PDF file into IHS (or other web server) htdocs directory? And let the IHS serve it?

If I could get the file over to the web server I could let IHS serve the file. Unfortunately, there are firewalls and other security issues which make this somewhat infeasible.
It would be nice if the File Serving Servlet had some configuration parameters which allowed it to handle such scenarios.
What if I had a web application which dynamically generated html files. How could I use WAS, IHS and OSE to show these files to the end user without placing all static content on the app server?
Michael
