Step 1: Create the Directory Structure

The following directory structure was used to create the HelloUserWikExample application:

Directory structure for Web application

This directory structure will be used in Step 6 to create a WAR file for the application. The structure includes the following directories and subdirectories:

Directory Contents
app_work (root) This directory serves as a development area for the Web application.
This directory contains the display page called app.jsp.
/WEB-INF This directory contains the Web application deployment descriptor file. The name of this file must be web.xml.
/WEB-INF/conf This directory contains the services properties files, which point to the locations of definitions for locally and remotely deployed SAS Foundation Services.
/WEB-INF/lib This directory contains the JAR files that are used by the JSP page.

This directory should contain all the JAR files that are located in the portal's Portal/WEB-INF/lib directory.
