Subject RE: How to make tomcat read .asp extension as .jsp file
Date Mon, 11 Jun 2001 23:18:55 GMT
Thank you for the suggestions, I will continue to play around with it, but
here is what I have come up with for those 3 solutions so far.  Guess I may
have to suck it up and go in and change everything.

1) No knowledge of how to write a batch script that can do this...I could do
it in java, but figured there must be an easier way.

2)This is going to be deployed on a server with quite a few other sites, so
I would prefer to keep it local...hopefully I could set an alias or
something inside the individual context in server.xml

3) I have tried that technique in the web.xml, but my changes don't seem to
be working as long as I want to use .jsp extensions also...again, I still
would like to keep it local.

three ways

1. 250 files, that is nothing, why don't you just write a .bat (batch)
script to do this for you?

2. change the file and add this line
	ctx.addServletMapping( "*.asp", "jsp");

3. in your web.xml file, I'm sure you can add in the lines

but I haven't verified the last one (3.) so you may want to play around with
