Hi Guru's,

Need some help. Here is my situtaion.

I have apache and Jboss on same machine with reverse proxy setup to serve images,css,js and other static files and the url I use to access is.

http://jboss_Apache_Machine_host_IP:80/myappcontext/myappname/Home
Example:
http://10.106.11.192/myappcontext/myappname/Home

Now while using this url for enabling SSO(I think its Oracle webcenter or radiant one sso) the SSO admin adds the above mentioned url to the portal as a hyper link. we login to portal and click on the link which gives us the logged in username and we let it get into the application. But here is the issue is the url changes when we access the application via portal's link. It becomes something like below:

http://portal_host_IP_address/portal/some_static_number/http%3B/myappcontext/userloginpage

Example: http://10.106.11.122/portal/server.pt/gateway/PTARGS_0_12018_4345_378/http%3B/10.106.11.192/myappcontext/myappname/Home

Now the issue is all the images are referring a link like below and throws a 404 error when we access via portal as we serve images and css,js as alias and document root in apache.

http://portal_host_IP_address:80/myapp_images/login_banner.gif

note: Here myapp_images is the alias name we use in apache to serve images.

This throws a 404 error when accessed via portal, but if we access the same url without portal(direct url i.e :http://jboss_Apache_Machine_host_IP:80/myapp_images/login_banner.gif) its coming up fine but here the requirement is to serve everything via portal url only as people who are not in intranet network also shall be able to access.

Please suggest how do it do it to make it work via portal url i.e http://portal_host_IP_address:80/myapp_images/login_banner.gif

Item 1 on the checklist: are U sure that the URL written in your html / webapp are relative to the home page, and not complete http://?
Could you paste the jsp source code of one such link?

Currently we have changed our java code to dynamically serve images with the referred url.
