WEBMATHEMATICA TUTORIAL

Mapping URLs onto JSPs

The way that webMathematica maps URLs onto JSPs is very straightforward. The URL names a JSP that lives directly in the webMathematica web application or in a subdirectory. Some examples are shown in this section.

In the first table, the MSP Script.jsp is located in the top of the webMathematica web application directory, for example, /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/webMathematica. It can be accessed by the URL http://host/webMathematica/Script.jsp.

  locating in the root directory; script name Script.jsp; script location /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/webMathematica; URL http://host/webMathematica/Script.jsp

In this second table, Script1.jsp is located in a subdirectory of the webMathematica web application directory, for example, /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/webMathematica/Test. The URL http://host/webMathematica/Test/Script1.jsp will find this JSP.

  locating in a subdirectory; script name Script1.jsp; script location /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/webMathematica/Test; URL http://host/webMathematica/Test/Script1.jsp

Remember that you should not place JSPs inside the WEB-INF directory. If you do, they will not be accessible.
