The configuration for a web application deployed on WebLogic is spread across the application’s deployment descriptors and the server configuration file. For instance:
The session timeout for the web
application can be configured using the
session-timeout element within the standard
web.xml deployment descriptor.
The JSP compilation parameters for a web application are defined in the WebLogic-specific weblogic.xml deployment descriptor.
The staging mode setting, which determines how a web application is deployed, can be found in the server’s config.xml file.
The easiest approach to editing the deployment descriptors is to use either the Administration Console or WebLogic Builder. The following sections examine WebLogic-specific configuration settings related to web applications.
A web application is rooted at a specific
path within the web server, called the context
root. For example, if the context root for a web
application is set to
here, you could access it by
using a URL of the form http://server:port/here/index.html. If you do
not explicitly set a context root for the web application, its
default value depends on how the web application has been packaged:
If the web application is deployed in the exploded format, its default context root is the name of the folder that holds the contents of the web application.
If the contents of the web application have been packaged as a web archive, its default context root is the name of the web ...
