    How to prevent viewing of JSP

    sebashkw Newbie


      I am using JBoss 3.2.3 with Struts. At the moment, the same page can be accessed using .jsp or .do extensions. How do I prevent access to jsp directly and force them to use do extension?

      I read that this is possible by configuring security in web.xml but not all AS supports it. Anyone have experience doing this in JBoss especially v3.2.3?

          What we have been doing is to put the JSP pages that are not meant for direct viewing inside WEB-INF.

          For example, you can create a folder under WEB-INF called "pages" and put all your jsp files there. You can then direct the request to use these pages in struts-config.xml

            Thanks Ryan. Surprised to find a fellow citizen replying to my emaill (hey singapore is not big on open source!).

            I heard about this solution but juz worried that it is not portable across different AS cos we might not be usign jboss after development stage.
