We have a website made up of .jsp files rather than .html and would like to put a copy of the site on a CD for sales people to have when they are with clients without internet connections.
I recently spent four hours creating .html files for every page by exporting each page from my browser and running scripts to edit links, etc in the .html files.
Does any one have any better ideas/solutions to this problem (other than the obvious installing of Tomcat on the salesperson's computers)?
Thanks
Don

You probably would need a website extractor

I often have to create browser based CD ROMs for customers and we are very limited as to what we can do. Of course anything requiring a Web Server such as JSP or ASP is out of the question. You are basically stuck with HTML/JavaScript unless you go with something like Macromedia Director to create your content but this is much different than using a web browser.

Thanks for the replies. I'll check out the website extractor. Elsewhere someone mentioned using IE's 'Work offline' capability. I played with it a bit and think that I might be able to get it to work.
I got it to download a chunk of the website and was able to access it off line. The files appear to be stored in the Temporary Internet folder, so the problem may be finding the files.

Depending what you need, you may also like to consider Adobe Acrobat. The "full" version of Acrobat can slurp up a whole site into a PDF document which can then be browsed, printed etc.
If your site is mostly static information, this can be very handy.
