I have deployed my simple RAP app to a WebSphere server (WAS) using the WAR Product feature. The app has no extra branding and I start it using the 'rap' servlet.

No icons of any kind (including standard images on comboboxes etc) are shown when the app runs on the WAS but are shown when running in the test environment.

Is a plug-in missing? Do I need to add something in my plug-in build settings?

Thanks

Paul

Paul,

the FAQ covers a couple of pitfalls related to deployment. Most likely
you forgot to update the build.properties [1].

Rüdiger,

thanks for the reply.

I guess I wasn't explicit enough, but the images I'm missing include those I would regard as built-in e.g. the triangle on a combo box or the 'x' on a view tab.

I also don't see my own images e.g. those on menu items. I selected the images folder in the 'Binary build' section but they can't be found on the deploy server.

If you 'look into' the deployed bundles, do they contain the images?

Rüdiger,

In the WAR on the WebSphere server I can unzip my JAR and see the images I added to my project. I don't know where the 'standard' images are kept. I tried a few likely candidates (rap.ui etc) but couldn't find anything.

I have not applied any custom branding or layout and am using the standard.

For now, let's assume that the RAP images are there too. BTW, did you
build the RAP bundles from source or did you use those from the target
platform?

Can you find the image files in the servlet engines working directory?
If you run on Tomcat it would be
/<tomcat-install>/work/Catalina/localhost/<web-app-name> /eclipse/workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.rap.ui/con text/rwt-resources

Did you try to run the WAR in another environment, e.g. a plain servlet
engine?

Can you ensure that the images are actually requested by the client and
the requests point to the right places? I.e. use the developer tools of
the browser of your choice to track the requests.

Rudiger,

the requests look like

http://srvxyz/webapps/rap/rwt-resources/resource/widget/rap/ ctabfolder/close.gif
http://srvxyz/webapps/rap/rwt-resources/resource/static/imag e/dotted_white.gif

and return a 404 (my context root is /webapps/rap)

----

I located the WAS working directory here

WASROOT\AppServer\profiles\AppSrv\temp\SRVxyz\RAP_Test\FairM anagement_war\FairManagement.war\eclipse\workspace\.metadata \.plugins\org.eclipse.rap.ui\context\rwt-resources

For example the dotted_white.gif is here

WASROOT\AppServer\profiles\AppSrv\temp\SRVxyz\RAP_Test\FairM anagement_war\FairManagement.war\eclipse\workspace\.metadata \.plugins\org.eclipse.rap.ui\context\rwt-resources\resource\ static\image

which does look similar to the failed request.

----

No, I havn't tried to run this on any other server except the built-in Jetty and WAS.


----

I did not build from source. I downloaded the Helios RAP release in early Jan 2011

Paul,

I would deploy the WAR on a different, plain servlet engine, just to be
sure that WebSphere isn't the reason why.
I remeber that someone else reported the same problem on this newsgroup.
It might be a year or more ago. If you take some time to search the
newsgroup archive [1] you will certainly find the post.

Rüdiger,

thanks for your help.

I have just tried the app on Tomcat and get the same problem. So it is not a WebSphere-specific problem which I guess is good.

You mentioned that there might have been a similar post over a year ago. Was that related to deploying to websphere or related to not finding static resources? I have searched but not found anything helpful yet.

Paul

It now works Smile

I noticed that there was an exception in the logs. Something to do with Jetty and an Address already in use bind error. I was surprised that Jetty would be active on the Tomcat server so I checked my plugin dependencies. In the end I removed all the dependencies and added the 'Required plugins'. That seemed to cure the problem. After redeploying, there were no Jetty exceptions and I get the images which were missing.

Hope this helps someone else.
