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.
