Hi,

I did not where else to place this question(wish there was a Websphere forum!!) I have been writing Java code to populate forms with customized data using the servlets on the FDF toolkit. I am using the Domino Servlet Engine on Windows NT currently which work fine, but my company has required running the servlet on a Websphere Application Server on AIX. Since AIX does not accept dlls, I probably need to use ".so" files to use the shared libraries that the toolkit provides. I then downloaded the fdf toolkit for UNIX and got a file called libfdftk.so out of there and placed it on my AIX server. Where do I go from there? How do I get the servlets to recognize that file? Don't know hardly anything about AIX or how to tell Websphere to use that file as a shared library file. Thanks.

All ".so" file and ".o" files have to be in you LD_LIBRARY_PATH which in java terms in you java.library.path system variable. You can put in the Web Sphere's lib directory I believe that's in the LD_LIRBARY_PATH but you might find that your ".so" file is dependent on other files.
Good luck

If you check the admin.conf file for web sphere you should see which directories it uses for it's library path
