WebSpeed Administration : Configuring WebSpeed on UNIX : Placing static files on the Web server

Placing static files on the Web server

Some of the HTML pages in your Web application may never change. These types of pages are called static HTML pages; they are never processed by WebSpeed. Java class files that your Web application uses are also considered static files. WebSpeed Workshop and WebSpeed applications rely on the static HTML and Java class files in install-path\webspeed. Static web files must be located under your Web server's document root directory. Alternately, you can configure your Web server to look for static files in the directory of your choice.
If your WebSpeed application uses static HTML files, you should place them on the Web server machine in a subdirectory of the Web server's document root directory (or consult your Web server documentation for information about other options, such as creating an additional document root directory). You must place image files (.gif), audio files (.au), and video files (.mpeg, .mpg) on the Web server machine. These files cannot be served directly by WebSpeed. You must place these files on the Web server machine.
WebSpeed objects or compiled code must be accessible and visible to the WebSpeed agents. Make the files accessible by placing them on the machine where your Transaction Server runs. You can make a file visible to the WebSpeed agents by adding its directory name to the Transaction Server's PROPATH.
