Howdo I stop CF 6.1 from intercepting requests for JSP pages?

Ok, I'm running IIS 6, CF 6.1, and trying to route requests for JSPs to Tomcat (using jspISAPI).

The problem is, I've already set IIS to use jspISAPI rather than the CF server for JSP requests, yet CF is still intercepting.  I've also restarted both IIS and CF several times.

Anyone done this before?  Any ideas?

did you go into iis and pull up properties for a site and on "Home Directory" tab click "Configuration" button.
Then find your .jsp extension and modify the executable path.

Yes, that's what I meant by "I've already set IIS to use jspISAPI rather than the CF server for JSP requests."  Sorry for not being clearer. =)

Thanks for your help.
Are you running CF server or the JRun edition?

either way, I believe if go find your web.xml or web-default.xml in path\to\CF\servers\coldfusion\SERVER-INF there is a line in there that forces jrun to intercept  jsp

!!!!BACKUP your web.xml before trying this so you can restore it if it goes wrong. !!!!

You can try removing these lines:


There are some other lines in there that reference .jsp pages that you can also try removing.

mmc98dl1 - thanks.  That seems to have worked.  But, I wonder if you might have some more helpful experience to that could benefit me before I close this question out?  Now, IIS seems to just be serving the jsp as a text file, rather than making the call to jspISAPI as I have set it to do for the *.jsp files.  

I even added the JspISAPI to the ISAPI filters under the website, and it shows it as not loaded.  If I put it under the home directory -> configuration -> wildcard application maps, it asks me for a username and password (like, Windows-style)

Any more insights?

mmm no cant help you there - I dont know much about IIS and Tomcat. So I can only assume that Tomcat isnt picking up the mapping from IIS.

What I have seen is that Tomcat and CF on the same server has been problematic for most people.
