4. Developing Your Own Pages

Once you have installed and configured a webMathematica server so that the examples run correctly and have studied the basics of writing material for webMathematica, as described previously, you are ready to start developing your own material.

One way to start is to make your own area in the webMathematica web application. You could make a directory here (for example NewScripts) and copy one of the samples (for example Plot.jsp) from the Examples directory. You could then access this script with the URL http://localhost:8080/webMathematica/NewScripts/Plot.jsp.

This might be a good time to revisit the webMathematica index page found at http://localhost:8080/webMathematica/index.html, which provides a number of links that demonstrate features of webMathematica. When you actually want to write your own material you may look at the Tips and Tricks described in this chapter. The chapter continues to describe other page development utilities that are part of webMathematica.
